Converted Drawing from MM to Inches

I have a drawing that was drawn in MM, I re scaled the drawing by a scale factor of .03937, when I check the dimensions it appears that it is still off by around 5"

 

Anyone ever experienced this before

1mm=0.03936996inch

 

You are close enough that 5" (1237mm)  just means the wrong MM dimension was used for the object you are measuring perhaps: what bare you measuring, and where?

I drew a line and re scaled the drawing, it was a PDF file convertered to a DXF and it was off by 5 ", so I just Re scaled the drawing and it came out perfect, small learning curve

 

Thanks
