Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

36 AWG is 0.005"
0000 AWG is 0.46" (treat 0000 as -3 below)

Thus 39 gauges result in a change of 92X, and the follow a power law.

diameter = 0.005" * 92^((i - 36)/39)

where i is the wire gauge, and "^" is raise to the power of. It may be expressed in metric by recognizing that 0.005" = 0.127 mm above.
