Howard -
  Regarding cold-formed sheet steel(studs, joists, etc.), the corresponding
gauges and approximate thicknesses(uncoated) are as follows:

Gauge          Thickness(in/mm) 
   20                  0.0346/0.88
   18                  0.0451/1.14
   16                  0.0566/1.44
   14                  0.0713/1.81
   12                  0.1017/2.38

Hope this helps.
