Default Tinned copper wire 22swg

Hi

I have a requirement for a reel of tinned copper wire can be 20 or 22swg I don't need a big reel, something like 10 - 15 metres will be fine.

If someone could point me in the direction of someone who can supply at a reasonable price.

Many thanks

Bill

Haven't had to buy any for years, but always used to use RS.

Hi Bill, I have a large reel of .66mm tined copper wire which I believe is slightly less than less than the 22 you need (it is thicker than 23swg). I can unwind some with no kinks and send in an envelope for postage. If ok please pm me your details.

John.

The trick to straightening single-strand copper wire is to stretch it slightly. I usually trap one end in the vice, grab the other end in pliers and stretch slightly. A dead straight piece of wire is the result.
