# How do you convert gauge to MM?

A 12-gauge shotgun, nominally 18.5 mm (0.73 in), can range from a tight 18 mm (0.71 in) to an extreme overbore of 20 mm (0.79 in).

The thickness of sheet metals is specified by gauge. The table below shows the actual thickness of sheet steel in millimetres and inches compared to gauge size.

### How do you measure gauge thickness?

How to Measure Sheet Metal Gauge Thickness Use a tape measure to find the thickness of your sheet metal piece. Multiply the number of millimeters by 0.03937 to convert to inches. Compare the thickness of your sheet metal in inches to a sheet metal gauge chart to find the proper gauge of that particular piece.

### What is gauge thickness?

A sheet metal gauge (sometimes spelled “gage”) indicates the standard thickness of sheet metal for a specific material. As the gauge number increases, the material thickness decreases. Sheet metal thickness gauges for steel are based on a weight of 41.82 pounds per square foot per inch of thickness.

### What is gauge measurement?

Unit of thickness of a metal sheet or wire. For example, a 5 gauge wire is 0.5 millimeter in diameter and a 6 gauge wire is 0.6 millimeter in diameter. Also spelled as gage. Instrument with a graduated dial or scale used in measuring a dimension or quantity or for establishing mechanical accuracy.

### How thick is 29g?

Gauge. The gauge of a metal roof refers to its thickness, and the higher the gauge, the thinner the metal. For example, standard 29-gauge steel roofing made in long panels is about 0.36 millimeters thick, and the 26-gauge version is slightly thicker at 0.48 millimeters.

### Is 5/16 or 8mm bigger?

A lot of tool manufacturers consider 5/16 and 8mm interchangeable. 5/16 is roughly 2 thousandths of an inch smaller, 0.06096mm but on a hardened Allen bolt that should not be significant, and I have never stripped the interior socket of a harden steel Allen bolt.

### How big is a 00 gauge?

This kit includes SINGLE tapers in all the following sizes 0 gauge (8mm), 00 gauge (10mm), 7/16 (11mm), 1/2 inch (12mm), 9/16 inch (14mm), 5/8 inch (16mm), 3/4 inch (19mm), 7/8 inch (22mm), and 1 inch (25mm).

### How do you convert gauges to inches?

Because you want to convert inches to mm, multiply by 25.4 so that the inch units cancel out [inches times (mm÷inches)]. So, multiply the gauge thickness in inches, 0.1644, by the conversion factor 25.4, or 0.1644×25. 4=4.17576 mm. Rounding to significant numbers gives the gauge thickness in millimeters as 4.18.

### What gauge is bigger 0 or 00?

0 gauge = 5/16-inch, 8.3 millimeters. 00 gauge = 3/8-inch, 9.3 millimeters.

### How many feet are in a gauge?

Generally, 1 gauge equipment works out to approximately 1:32 scale (roughly 10mm = 1 foot). G scale at 1:22.5 means the 1 gauge track represents 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) metre gauge track.
