Tech/Engineering - Metrology / Nagler / Nailer
English term or phrase: gauge
Betriebsanleitung für einen Nagler. Bei den Technischen Daten findet sich folgender Eintrag:
Nail diameter: 1.8 (15 gauge) oder bei einem anderen Modell (16 gauge).
In deutschen Katalogen des Herstellers findet sich dieser Hinweis "gauge" nicht, sondern nur:
Nageldurchmesser: 1,8 mm

Was bedeutet dieses "gauge"?
Vielen Dank im Voraus.
