Wire Gauge Table

Dear Readers,
 
Gauge systems and are used to represent the thickness of the wire or diameter of the wire. In Great Britain wire gage has been legalized. Following gauges are available in industrial usage. 

   1. British Sheet & Hoop Iron Standard Gauge (Birmingham Gauge)
   2. U.S.Standard Gauge for Sheet & Plate Iron & Steel
   3. Birmingham Wire Gauge (or Stabs'iron  wire or Warrington Gauge)
   4. British Imperial Standard Wire Gauge
   5. American Steel & Wire Co.(or Washborn & Moen or Rocbling or Steel Wire Gauge)
   6. Washbrn & Moen Steel Music Wire Gauge
   7. New American Steel & Wire Co. music Wire Gauge
   8. American or Brown & Sharpe Wire Gauge
Dimensions of above said wire gauges are listed below. Specific usage are mentioned bottom of the table (Represented as Column-2, Column-3, etc.,). All dimensions are in mm. Click on Picture to enlarge
 
Column-2 : Used in great Britain for sheets and strips but in the United States only for strips (for black sheet see columns 3 and 4)
Column-3 : This gauge is used in the United States for black sheet
Column-4 : Used in Great Britain and the United States for wire (in the United States also used for black sheet and strips)
Column-5 : Used in Great Britain for iron and steel wire ; in the United States it is also used for copper wire.
Column-6 : The United States Bureau of Standards combines these gauges under the name " Steel Wire Gauge. "This is the most widely used gauge for wire in the United States.
Column-7 & 8 : For music wire
Column-9 : Used in the United States for nonferrous wire and sheets. The fractions have been approximated. 
Overall as the gauge number decreases, the thickness of the wire increases. Note that 000000 are pronounced " Six aught" . Similarly is an abbreviation for 0000 is pronounced " four aught" and so on.
