i use 30g, .010" thick gold for flush inlays and generally shoot for about .007-.008" cavity depth.

I make sure my wire can sit in the cavity at least 1/2 the diameter or a little more, usually a little more but not much. It will come with practice. Search up the forum there some great topics already covering this, addressed by the greats.
Use gold inlay, and related keywords for your search.
