Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpecialJ Yup, its a piece of 22 gauge sheet metal.
Just what I expected, a piece of bare (not coated) sheet metal ready for a small welding project. What's amazing is that I looked high and low for 22 gauge sheet metal (I didn't want to buy a whole sheet) at the local hardware stores, welding supply, etc. I just wanted a piece scrap (by the way don't call it scrap, political correctness is "remnant"). On a lark I Googled it and got a hit for The Home Depot, so I called my local Home Depot with part number in hand, but since the Barstow, CA 92311 Home Depot is a small store I would have to order on line so I did. Anyway I order the 1'X2' piece since the shipping is the same for 1'X1' piece. Now I too have a remnant of 22 gauge sheet metal to add to my scrap pile.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mikw Just Sheet Metal, but..
The product is relatively easy to machine, shear, stamp, and bend. Downsides: there are 2 of them. The Galvanized plating is not impervious to rusting (I have bought 2 separate sheets, and both of them had rust spots on them), and while it stated on the product label that the size was 12" x 24", one sheet was sub size to the exact dimension by 1/8" on each axis, and the other was as stated, so, measure in-store before you buy.. if exact size is necessary for your task.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ralphoo Good steel sheet
This is just what I wanted: a weldable piece of 16-gauge (approx. 1/16" thick), plain mild steel, not coated or plated with anything.
Problem: the Home Depot product title calls this GALVANIZED! In fact, a big part of the point of this product is that it is NOT, repeat NOT galvanized! Why? Because this type of steel is mainly used in welding. Galvanized steel, when welded, gives off fumes that can make the welder quite sick. This is well known in the trade.
Because the product title contains the term 'galvanized', at first I thought it was not suitable for welding. It took me quite a while to determine that, despite the title, this product is NOT galvanized. I hope this error can be corrected in the near future.

Your specifications listed for 16 ga plain steel sheet need to be corrected. This product is NOT 19/32'' thick. Nor is it .598'' thick. It is 1/16'' or .0625'' thick.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spamfreemwc A great piece of steel that fulfilled its purpose.
This was purchased as an integral part of my daughter's science project which studied the effect of pH on the corrosion of steel. It corroded better than we could have hoped for in the time that was allotted.
