  1. #1

    Default What is the decimal/fraction equivalent to guage thickness?

    I am in Avaition and use .020, .032, .040, .050 thick metal and dont deal in 16 guage, 18 gauge and so forth. What is the equivalents? I know all the 1/16, 1/8, 1/4 and so forth also just lost on the guage thickness. TIA Jeff CamoXJ

    Are you sure? I thought when I was shopping for metal, they told me 11 gauge was close to 1/4".

    Guage vs thickness varies depending on material; example 10 guage brass/aluminium/steel/stainless/galvanized sheets measure.1019/.1019/.1345/.1406/.1382 respectively.

    Looking at hot or cold rolled steel

    10 = .1345
    11 = .1196
    12 = .1046
    13 = .0897
    14 = .0747
    15 = .0673
    16 = .0598
    17 = .0538
    18 = .0478
    19 = .0418
    20 = .0359

    I'm going from a guage chart from a metal supplier, but you might be able to root one out on the net somewhere.

    I see that. I guess the guy at my metal supply place mis-spoke.

    That's not exactly correct, it is close enough for hand grenades but 1/8" = .125" and 11 gauge = .1196"

    Ummmm

    your link takes you to the exact same chart, just hosted by PBB. Which prolly means they just cut and pasted it into a page.


    Is it possible you had another page in mind?

    or you posted right after the other link was posted?
