Dimensions are given in millimeters/inches. Measurements are made to and from tone hole centers. For double holes, the 'center' lies between the top of the higher and bottom of lower hole. 
Measurements where there are keys are made to a point 5 mm into the key touch piece.
*  Hole 3-4 distance is not a finger stretch, since holes 3 & 4 use separate hands.
** Instruments are listed in the order of increasing stretch for finger holes 4-5 (the most problematic), then finger hole stretch 2-3, the next worst.
