    Does anyone have one telling the breakdown of wall thickness? I would like to know inch measurements for .065, .083 and .095
    I found one chart on pirate but all i saw were thicknesses for 1/8" and larger. Thanks!

    I can give you the 4 common sizes,

    Each 1/64 of an inch is .015625 so using that you can get close buy dividing said decimal by .015625 and then add your 64ths. So .065 would be roughly 1/16th of an inch. .083 would be roughly 5/64ths of an inch. .095 would be roughly 3/32nds of an inch and .120 is almost 1/8th inch.

    1/64th = .015625
    1/32nd = .03125
    1/16th = .0625
    1/8th = .125
    1/4 = .250
    1/2 = .500

    As far as a chart I have never seen one but I'm sure it's available somewhere.

    Here's a link to a chart that I've used in the past. It starts at 1/64 and goes up to 63/64.

    Keep in mind that gage thickness for sheet and tubing are not the same.
    Here's a chart that shows tubing and sheet gage sizes.
