Good, friendly service and low prices.

The wire from the site you mention is not heat bondable so you will be adding a bit of weight to your coils in the form of glue or lacquer to hold them together. No need to buy from the US, we have a good supplier of wire in the UK: http://www.wires.co.uk/acatalog/SX_0032_0090.html

The thinnest heat bondable they do is 0.08mm which is too thick for the coils you want to make.
Some very helpful links thanks epilot ,am I right in thinking the 0.040mm and 0.045mm could be a good match for makeing something similar to the 200mg one from Plantraco?,right I need to check out the how twos section again and I think I'll have this done ,maybe
