"acceptable" warp range...

That is great news about different thickness of weatherstrip. I will follow up with them.

No, it is actually 241/100". Old dial calipers are read in 2 parts and summed (see attached photo for those interested in "dial caliper 101"):
1. The coarse reading down to 1/10, which in this case is 0.200", plus
2. The fine reading down to 1/1000, which in this case is about 0.041


Thanks yet again,
parkerea

Are you kidding? Small price to pay for the Qlon weatherstrip info! Now, if you want to know how to read a vernier caliper, a skill that is as current as using a slide rule or an abacus, and since the vernier caliper dates back to the 17th century it is nearly as old as the slide rule, just let me know.


Thanks one more time,
parkerea
