For scale conversion here is a handy website that helps out IMMENSELY.   http://jbwid.com/scalcalc.htm 

I have it bookmarked and use it alot.

are you sure?

 

i got nothing, then tried just the root address with .com, and got something quite unsuitable for scale modeling purposes. unless one was waiting for paint to dry!

Thanks, Bob.  This is going to come in very handy.

 

Also, on another note; I want to point out that beading wire is uninsulated, which means you can use an AWG conversion chart to determine actual wire diameter.  Electrical wiring, on the other hand, will have insulation which varies greatly in thickness depending on intended application.  Wrapping, or magnet wire, used for inductors, guitar pickups or electro-magnets, has a thin enough coating as to be nearly insignificant to scale calculations.   Hope this helps.
