Default Inexpensive wire source

Good evening everyone

Im sure many already know the site, but has some pretty inexpensive signal wire

Teflon coated 22ga. 2 conductor braided sheild wire is .19 per ft. (pretty flexible)

Also 178v Toriod transformers for preamps are $9.88 each. The filament out put is 17v but a couple resistors can fix that.

I hope some find the info useful

Electronic Surplus as been in the greater Cleveland area for over 60 years. Many major companies would sell their excess stock to Electronic Surplus. They recently moved to the far East side suburbs so it's a long trip for me.

Thanks, I like teflon wire in case I inadvertantly wave the soldering iron around. I paid $60 for a 100' 22 ga roll of Alpha modern stock. It ROHS compliant, in case anybody in Europe wants to buy my piddling projects. HA! Wondered where all the tin-lead coated stuff went, thought I had missed that bus while I was working too much for hobbies. Both are good, but Cleveland is $5 1 day shipping from here, LA is $8 4 days, if the 4 days from Phoenix are any indication.
