Entering factional inch tool dimensions converted incorrectly to metric

Bug: When adding or modifying tools while in "inch" unit format, inserting in fractional values to the tool seems to mistakenly convert the value to metric. So a 7/64" tool is changed to a .0043" tool.

Hmm. I just tested this on my end, and it's working as expected:

Are you up-to-date on Fusion?

Yes, I am on Fusion 360 2.0.15299 x86_64. I entered in a decimal value and then a fractional value. the preview did not change, but when I hit enter, the preview in the Tool Library updated to show the metric size tool. In this instance, the tool library is also showing the previous "inch" diameter value.

Would you be able to capture your steps in a screen recording, by chance?

Are you using the Insider Program version of Fusion? There's a Preview Flag that controls this, and it's expected behavior
