A piece of sheet metal that is considered to be 7 grade is about .18 inches thick. If your metal happens to be aluminum, the thickness will be much less at .14 inches thick. The higher the gauge, the thicker the steel!
You may think that because the gauge is a small number the thickness will be as well. Not so with the gauge standard. The higher the gauge the thinner the steel becomes. A 10 gauge steel will measure .14 inches thick. If the steel is galvanized it will be slighty more at .141 inches thick.
