Wire Gauge

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, i'm new here. I have a question about the wire gauges. I'm going to be making a significant purchase soon and have the list of wire I want to purchase. Before I do so, I need to know exactly what i'm buying. So, can one of you tell me which gauge this statement is. 16g SWG = 14g AWG = 0.063" = 1.6mm.  Is this 16g or 14g?

Since there are two gauge systems, there are always two answers to the question "what is 16g" - however....

When you purchase rings here, the 16g rings refer to the SWG gauge system.

You can see that here: http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=29&cat=Machine+Cut+Stainless+Steel+Jump+Rings

If you scroll down to the 16g selection, you'll see the following

Stainless Steel 16g 
Wire Dia.: 0.0625" (1.59mm = 16g SWG = 14g AWG)
