Hi Gents, soft iron wire ~ florists binding wire, En Cu wire, Scientific wire co.

Note that these will not make a Wimshurst machine, that uses rotating glass discs.
It will make a nice induction or shocking coil that can power neon tubes and X-ray tubes(not a good idea)

Which Campus? There's 10 of them and I haven't been able to dig it up unfortunately.

Agreed. Prior to making my Wimshurst machine I was browsing in a plastics supplier shop in Liverpool. In the clearance sectionI came across a stack of clear perspex discs 12" diameter ca 5 mm thick with a centre hole ready drilled.

I bought a couple ( quite cheaply ) and used them in my subsequent construction project. They were completely satisfactory.
