      I have noticed pipe and tubing with the wall thickness quoted as SWG10 SWG12 SWG14 etc etc

      Please can anyone advise me what thicknesses these are?

      Thanks

      SWG = standard wire gauge. SWG14 = 2.03 mm. The bigger the SWG number, the lower the wall thickness. This page has conversions:

      Tube is specified by outside diameter and wall thickness, pipe by inside diameter and wall thickness.

      Cheers
