[OpenSCAD] Can't figure out how to draw thin cylinders.

Another thing: OpenSCAD displays and exports in mm. To switch to inch you
have to introduce a factor: 

inch = 25.4; 

pcbradin = 2.5*inch; // inside radius of cktboard
pcbradout = 5.0*inch; // outside radius of cktboard
pcbthin = 1/16*inch;  // thickness of circuit board
pcbthick = 1/8*inch;  // thickness of the subtracted cylinder
//render (convexity=1) 
difference()
{
color("red");
echo ("first",pcbthin, pcbthick);
color("red") cylinder(h=pcbthin,r=pcbradout,$fn=100, center = true);
echo ("second",pcbthin, pcbthick);
color("blue") cylinder(h=pcbthick+1 ,r=pcbradin,$fn=100,center=true);
}
color("blue") cube([pcbthick,pcbradin,5*inch], center=true);
