Sheet metal is simply metal formed into thin and flat pieces and can be cut and bent into a variety of different shapes. The thickness of the sheet metal is called its gauge. The gauge of sheet metal ranges from 30 gauge to about 8 gauge. The higher the gauge, the thinner the metal is. There are many different metals that can be made into sheet metal, such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, tin, nickel and titanium.
