if you are not needing to be absolutely spot on accurate (odd mentioning this as i work in ten thousandths), a fairly quick convention is taking mm, multiplying by 10, then dividing it by 256.

of course, accuracy can be achieved by dividing it by 254, but it isn't as readily reducible into SAE fractional systems (eighth, quarters, sixteenths, etc.) as easily.

anyway, works for me though i attempt to avoid metric whenever possible.
