2x4 size difference
I am framing my basement. I bought some 2x4s and I also kept some 2x4s from the old finished basement. I just found the actual width of the them are different. There are about 3 different measurements. The differences are about 1/8 to 1/16. Should I avoid mixing them?

Yes---save the odd ball ones for blocking or other uses---you will have trouble with drywall finishing if the studs are mismatched.
