FAQ

What does SWG mean?

It stands for 'Standard Wire Gauge' and is a unit of measurement often used for the thickness of tube walls. You can find more about this on our Sizing page.

What are your tolerances?

Our standard tolerance on our custom cuts is +/-2mm. However, we usually cut with greater accuracy by default. If you need even greater accuracy, please contact us.
