thickness of large steel members typ expressed in

fractions/decimals of inch

2

origin in weight per sqft of metal

gage

3

used to describe sheet steel,
and nonferrous metals,
of tubing, strips + sheets.

gage

4

bc today gage is approx. of metals thickness, best practice is

call out thickness is decimals of in.
