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 seems much closer to 1/8".
