This question and answer got me looking at the FM help to see how this work.
But, I'm still not sure how to get some numerics to sort correctly. 

This is what I get:

100 mm stud
150 mm stud
200 mm stud
70 mm stud
90 mm stud

This is what I want:

70 mm stud
90 mm stud
100 mm stud
150 mm stud
200 mm stud

How do I use the [aaa] type of construction to get this to sort?

Subject: RE: Sort order of entries in an index

Put the "sort order" info in square brackets (e.g. [aaa] ) not angle

        <$nopage>changing:see also modifying[aaa]
