Default European mandrel size conversion...

I have a request from a buyer (not sure where but outside of the US) to make a bead using a 2.4mm mandrel. This is probably a dumb question, but, can anyone tell me what size mandrel that would equal to here in the US?

Thanks
~Lynn

Also, if one were to Google for 'mm to inches conversion' there is a large selection of free on-line calculators to choose from.

Gosh, with math SO NOT being my forte, I use those calculators all the time-lol I was in a bit of a rush and was hoping that someone could (and they did) give me a quick "which mandrel to use"-type answer and they did (via etsy). But the chart mentioned above is very useful!

Thanks!
