Steel wire guage

Hi, I am interested in buying some steel wire online. Since steel
uses a different measuring scale I can’t tell what gauge is, say, 12
guage in SS would convert to in steel. Does anyone know of a site,
or place where I can find this Thanks!

For wire info go to:

Hi Judy, Try out it’s a good site for metal
conversions, weight calculator, etc.

Hope this helps.

Base metals are typically measured in Standard Wire Gauge (SWG)
while precious metals are measured in American Wire Gauge (AWG).
You can find both listed here:
