1/8" is wider and pitch is something else

I just tried to edit my post and lost everything so here goes again: Ive just measured using a ruler and the thickness of the ring is 3mm, does this make it a 3/32?

edit: i am an idiot. that is all. thank you for taking part.

if you have another chain with known width, you could always just compare them. The 1/8 is wider than the 3/32.

3mm is probably the 1/8"

3mm seems much closer to 1/8".

pitch is the distance between teeth not the width
