Can anyone give me the diameter in inches of the character counters?

I'm at work and I'd like to stop by a Michael's craft store on the way home to pick up some wooden goodness to mount the counters to.

I'm looking for the measurement from side to side of the hex, not vertex to vertex.

Thanks!

Well, I don't know either one, but I do know that you can convert the latter to the former by multiplying by 0.866.

That is both cool and terrifying that you would be able to recite that off the top of your head!

It's not some random number, it's the square root of 3, divided by 2.

You probably knew this once, to pass high school geometry.

I mount mine on black and white foam core from the art shop. Easy to cut and use silly putty to stick them on.

By my measure they are 21/36 of an inch.
Vertex length is 12/16 of an inch.

I believe you are incorrect. The distances are 7/12 and 3/4 inches, respectively.

/36?? That should have been /32... damned non-metric measurements.

Vertex is 12/16 or as correctly pointed out 3/4; I stand divided.
3/4 times .866 is 0,6495 and my measure 21/32 is 0,65625, so actually
I should have measured it to 20,784/32 or 7,794/12 but my metric/inches ruler is not that precise.
