Bob, you've already taken the step I would have suggested and ordered thinner wire. Once you get your motor wound with the 26awg wire, you will have learned some tricks and can rewind it with thicker wire later. Make sure you are using an old prop to wedge between the stator teeth to flatten out your windings as you go. I don't rewind very often, so after I rewind a motor, my thumbs hurt for several days afterwards from tugging the wire tightly. Be patient, take your time, and once you finally get-er-done, you will be rewarded with a great motor and the satisfaction of having done it yourself.
