Default Building some DIY interconnects little help sourcing parts?

I'm wondering if anyone here knows where I can get some single strand OFC copper? I'd like something that PTFE or cotton insulated. I can insulate my self if needed. I'm either going to do this or silver but I'm not sure I buy all the silver vs copper stuff. I'll probably just use some PE connectors. Any help is appreciated thanks! And I think I put this in the right forum.


Doug

One source would be Michael Percy.

DIYcable has solid core copper?

I went ahead and ordered some teflon insulated 22ga solid strand copper from PercyAudio.

Any dedicated DIY Hi Fi place will rip you off for cable and wire - this is my source for silver and copper wire


http://wires.co.uk

4N silver is excellent and almost half price compared to others. They also have cotton and teflon insulated copper.

Thanks for the link, not real sure about ordering from the UK but their prices are definitely very good it seems.

Postage is very reasonable - always standard UK post rates. To Australia for 100g or wire is 8BP I think

For this one, scan down the page, many items.
http://www.diyhifisupply.com/diyhs_wire_connectors.htm

I bought cotton piping from Regerence Audio Mods and other supplies from DIYHIFISupply. Both were fine. The items from Hong Kong were here in 6 or 7 days. They made a mistake, bent over backwards and lost money to fix it! I would go to both again!

I hope this helps.

Regards//Keith

Do not pay more then 50c a meter for cotton braid tubing. Serach ebay for people that sell ropes - they usuallu have unbleached cotton ropes where you can remove central strings.

Ok I'll look into that. I think I'm going to buy a 100gram spool of the cotton insulated copper and a 100gram spool of the 99.99% .375mm silver wire. I've been wanting to experiment with the silver and copper and that site has it cheap enough that I can buy both. I'm guessing their silver wire is uninsulated though so I might have to look into buying the cotton rope.
