    does anyone have any type of chart that tells what the measurement is inreguards to what guage it is, like 17 guage would be as an actual measurement. hope this makes sense. math is my major weak area.
    thanks

      So when we talk about 16 or 18 gauge are we talking about
      American wire... or Steel wire... or ?

        Not too sure what your looking for. Steel wire gauges or steel sheet gauges. Mabe you could print this out. http://www.engineersedge.com/gauge.htm

          i may not have explained myself clearly enough. if i was to buy a sheet of 17 guage plate steel or aluminum what would its actual measurement in the thickness be. sorry for any confusion
          thanks

                    It's different, all right...earth year is actually 364.2422, which is why we have Feb, 29. If anyone doesn't understand that, I'll explain later.

                      If I had been asked I would have said that too.

                      Man you have some good stuff! Too bad you aren't in Houston.

                          A little stiring of the pot here is all. Your question wasn't confusing having 4 or more gage standards for different things is a little confusing. Thats why aluminum is specified by inch or metric thickness and thin steel sheet metal is also now days. I'm use to thinking in gage size but always aware of inch size. I'm still don't think in metric units unless required.

                            To add to what Roger is saying, the mills don't get the exact thickness as specified, either...the thickness will float a few thousanths either way, too.

                              Here is a little more stirring. This chart gives you the max and min for each gage and also the weight per square foot which is handy to know. Some of the size limits overlap so your material could qualify as two gages.
