Help!
Small Quanity Enameled Wire Vendor

Hello all!

Q: Is there a small quanity enameled wire vendor (in the US perferribly) that you have good experience with?

I could go through any number of wire sales companies, however I wanted to see if anyone knew of someone that is stocking supplies (1.0mm (0.039") enameled solid wire). Quanity required for my current need is only for one motor, 20 feet would be more than enough.

Some of the larger companies might "sample" me what I need. I'm even thinking of how nice it would be to have a specialized vendor in "Brushless Motor Building Supplies", you know stuff like, defferent sizes of wire, bearings, shafts, collets, mini pullers!, magnets, epoxies, insulation products, kits. Hummm I hope someone is jumping on this idea if there is no one already.

Thanks in advance for all your replies and have a great day!

Doug

Excellent Jack, thanks a ton brother!

EDIT: The TECHFIXX looks like what I'm looking for, some 21 AWG will work (2 strands) or perferred
18 AWG for a 12 turn 28x26 dLRK stator, so he sells on EBAY and looking for him but nothing comes up with "techfixx", so I'll just email them & find them that way.

You're more than welcome, of course. Most of those sell wire by AWG sizes, I use this link to do the conversions:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_wire_gauge

The wire in that table will be the uncoated sizes, the coating adds a few thousandths or so. It is also a good reference for figuring out the surface area for comparing it to the most often found on the Chinese motor multi-strand winds to single strands.

The Chinese brushless motors are almost always wound with multiple strands of 0.25mm wire, any were from two or three to 12 strands or more. And the high KV motors with only a few turns are wound with parallel strands in order get a more flexible bundle where a single large strand would be needed.

The Radio Shack wire is junk and comes in a limited range of sizes (only one?).

Thanks everyone. So far I've rewound 2ea "Pulso" AXI knock off 2826/8 & 10 turn motors. Modisc has been very helpfull as all could easily guess. I like & employ his "seperate tooth" winding philosiphy - technique.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
