If it's the same alloy it is--25 gauge steel is thicker.

14 gauge steel is thicker than 16 gauge steel: 0.0781 inches vs. 0.0625 inches.

no, in metal, as the gauge goes down, the thickness, ergo the strength, goes up. so 10 gauge steel would be stronger than 14 gauge

Yes, it is.

12 gauge is thicker than 14 gauge.

Yes it is.

Depends on what you are using if for.

14 gauge steel is thicker than 16 gauge steel: 0.0781 inches vs. 0.0625 inches.

No. The larger the number, the thinner the steel. 16 gauge is the thicker of the two.

Yes, it is.

12 gauge is thicker than 14 gauge.

Nope. 14 gauge is thicker (about 1.98 mm) while 16 gauge is about 1.59 mm thick.

16 gauge is thicker than 18 gauge.

no

GAUGE , is one inch thick of steel or metal. So, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 12 equal thickness sheets , you get a 12 gauge steel sheet. Similarly, take this one inch thick of steel sheet and cut it into 14 equal thickness sheets , you get a 14 gauge steel sheet. and so on . So, a 12 gauge steel sheet is thicker than 14 gauge , 14 is thicker than 16 , 16 is thicker than 18 and so on. Wrong!!! See my discussion on this...
