Just discussing this the other day with my carpenter. We were trying to think of all the terms we use, that are not exact measurements, to tell how much we need cut off of something or something adjusted. Here are somethat wet came up with:

Blade
Touch
Smidge
Light
Heavy
Scosche

What are some terms that you guys use?

I can go with "heavy" or "shy" for in between the 1/16ths, otherwise just give me the measurement.
Having said that, I did work with a guy who would sometimes say "tree apes". It was just one of those things that shouldn't be funny, but it was.
