#### What gauge of steel is thicker?

Few people know why the thickness of steel diminishes as the gauge increases (ie: 16 gauge steel is thicker than 20 gauge steel). The explanation comes from the early development of a steel gauge measurement system in which the control measurement was based on a 1″ thick steel plate.

How thick is 8 gauge steel?

For different materials of steel , the same gauge will also correspond to different mm. Standard Steel : 8 Gauge = 4.176 mm Stainless Steel : 8 Gauge = 4.191 mm Aluminum, Brass, Copper: 8 Gauge = 4.115 mm

## What is thicker 6 Guage or 8 Guage?

A higher-gauge blind is thicker and stronger than a lower-gauge blind; making it more resistant to denting and bending. Thicker 8-gauge blinds may be more expensive than thinner 6-gauge blinds because more material goes into making them. It is recommended to choose the highest grade possible for maximum durability.

What is the best gauge for stainless steel?

The gauge is the thickness of the stainless steel. An easy rule of thumb is, the lower the number of the gauge, the thicker and better the stainless steel. Therefore, 18 gauge is better than 20 gauge.

### What tool is used to measure metal thickness?

A sheet metal gauge tool is used to measure metal thickness, and show both the gauge number as well as the thickness of the metal in thousandths of an inch.
