Metal Fab Must Have: Sheet Metal Gauge for Welding, Plasma Cutting & More! Eastwood

Takes the guesswork out of measuring sheet metal and wire!

  • Perfect!
    This is the perfect all around gauge to have in the shop. I will take this hands down over a digital gauge anytime. This takes the guess work out of thickness and I set my mig up in twice the time. I also did note that it is made of tempered metal, can't tell you the Rockwell but it is tempered. It is extremely accurate as I tested it against a set of feeler gauges. Great value.
  • Workable Sheet Metal Thickness Gauge
    This is the third attempt to find a sheet metal thickness gauge that is simple, workable and won't fail. Glad to say that this gauge is all three, so the search is finally ended in success. This gauge provides a very easy, accurate means to determine the gauge/thickness of just about any sheet metal product. Have now checked and cataloged just about all the various pieces of metal in the shop. It's a really wonderful little tool.
  • Easy to read!
    I purchased this item from Eastwood almost a month ago. When it arrived I couldn't believe the actual size of it. I've had a couple of these in the past, but they were much smaller. This one is so much easier to handle and see what you are actually measuring. Thanks Eastwood for going above and beyond!
  • Nice Tool
    Being I am new to hobby welding and a limited budget, I can not afford trial and error to build out my tools so far this gauge is alright its heavy, fits my large hands,easy to read and I think it will last for sometime to come.
  • Good addition to your shop
    I cut with a plasmacam table every day. I use various thickness of steel from 18 guage to 3/16" hrs and crs. Have a digital thickness guage that drives me crazy with inaccuracy with temp change. This is the perfect solution. Great tool.
  • If you want to know what the correct gauge is...
    You need to add one of these sheet metal gauges to your collection. For years I've told myself "I sure need one in my shop", well, this is the one to get. No more guessing what the thickness is. Now I can be sure of what I need...
  • Handy tool
    I bought this sheet metal gauge to help me figure out the best settings on my Eastwood mig 175 welder. It is a heavy gauge piece, not a cheapo. It works great, and takes the guesswork out of it. I also got it on sale at a great price. Thanks Eastwood, Robert M, Springfield OR
  • Sweet!
    Good quality tool! Just what I was looking for and I'm glad I bought it. Wish they hadn't shipped it to me with a new sale flyer that listed it on sale for $2.00 less than I paid though.... :-(
    I've been guessing on gauges for years now, usually picking info up on forums from the older guys who assembled the cars(!) This gauge is like school for me, I take it to the Pick/Pull just to learn the thicknesses of certain make/models/areas on cars. I take it to the local metal mart, I'm getting pretty good now, guys ask ME what gauge metal to use for "so and so" on their projects. I like this tool just for what I now know, plus I am matching my work perfectly! Thanks!
  • sheet metal gauge
    perfect for my projects, and setting my welder to the right temperature.
  • Very impressed
    In the catalog and online, it looks huge, but it comes wrapped in bubble wrap in a padded envelope. However, don't let its size fool you. This is a substantial piece of metal with accurately sized slots and clear, easy-to-read graphics on both the front and back. Easier and much quicker to use than digital calipers, it gives you the answer you're seeking quickly and without ambiguity. It's a great addition to anyone's toolbox.
  • It's a very useful little tool to have!
    For the size and usefulness of this little tool, it's absolutely a must have for any garage or shop. It's actually very accurate to. Its well made, doesn't feel like its going to break by just touching it. Overall, love it! Buy it, dont even think about it! :)
  • Metal Guage
    I think all people who work with metal should have one of these gauges. I was extremely happy when it arrived. Now I no longer have to listen to the old comment " well it is either 16 or 18." I carry time every time I go the the shops!
  • Fabricators Best Friend
    This Sheet Metal Gauge makes finding the correct guage stock a no brainer. No more guessing games or arguements in the shop as to what guage material to order. A real time saver. Thanks again EastWood for another great product.
