For K&S Brass tubing... at the hobby shop, do they list the I.D. or O.D? Because I went to one and none of the idiots knew (FOUR of them.)

EDIT: My hobby shop lists it as the I.D.

Inner diameter... add 1/64" to get the OD, is that correct?

Other way, they list O.D and then subtract 1/32" for I.D.

And as everyone knows, money makes the world go round. It's also the root of all evil, therefore the world going round is evil, and we should stop the rotation of the planet.

Well, I bought one, and the answer IS:

They list the I.D, Im sitting here with a bunch of lengths of brass that are not what I intended.

Hmm, mine have always been the O.D. Do the tubes have the original stickers or did the shop relabel them?

K&S is sold by OD.

9/16" K&S brass is 17/32" ID.
