The measurement are approximations.  Exact guard sizes differ due to clipper manufacturer specifications.  A+

This is a great and very informative post if you decide to use a guard on your own head or if your barber is not sure.  It will be locked and left in this new forum for anyone looking for great info.  Thanks to all who posted the info.  Great stuff.
