Hi to all!
following the only mpc table reference I've found on the net (http://westwindmusic.com/facings.html)
the tenor yanagisawa have this "openings in thousandths of an inch" but I'm quite sure they are in 1/100 of inchs:

number 5 is 95
number 6 is 100
number 7 is 105
number 8 is 110
number 9 is 115

after I've checked out the yanagisawa official site (http://www.yanagisawasax.co.jp/en/accessory/mouth/)
where I see that this other openings but 1/100 mm:

number 5 is 200 (in 1/100 mm) that become 78,74015748 (in 1/100 of inchs)
number 6 is 217 (in 1/100 mm) that become 85,43307087 (in 1/100 of inchs)
number 7 is 240 (in 1/100 mm) that become 94,48818898 (in 1/100 of inchs)
number 8 is 260 (in 1/100 mm) that become 102,3622047 (in 1/100 of inchs)
number 9 is 277 (in 1/100 mm) that become 109,0551181 (in 1/100 of inchs)

do you think I've done a wrong conversion or they have put wrong numbers on westwind site???
please help!

The 9 is about an Link 8, (.110'ish). It looks like the first list is a little off, with all the facings being a little more open than they really are..........
