Default Why Is Silver/Teflon Wire So Difficult To Buy?

I want to buy 1000ft 14 awg wire but every single place I talk to wants a reseller/tax id. I must have called 15 places and none of them will sell to an individual.

M22759-9-14 or (M22759-11-14)
M27500-16-RC2-S06

Does anyone know where I can purchase silver plated teflon jacket wire?

I'm surprised you don't need a loan to buy that.

I have the M22759/11 600V or M16878/4
But you ask for 14 Awg but your p/n is 16 Awg
and the M22759/9 is rated at 1000V is that what you want?

what part number would you recommend? (typo on the 16/14)
I just need silver coated copper and oxygen free with teflon jacket

M22759-9-14 is for single wire 14awg that i will twist
Should I use M22759-11-14 instead?


M27500-16-RC2-S06 is for preamp / 2 wire with shield that I will use to make XLR cables (16awg)

M22759/9 is just a little thicker jacket then the M22759/11 they are both the same to me and like 2 cents ft difference

Electronic Surplus lists some 12AWG. Give them a call, as most of their stock never makes it to the web-page.

That would make a strange balanced interconnect.

If you can use 600V either M22759/11 or M16878/4
I have in stock....
14 Awg is $325.00 per 1000ft
16 Awg is $240.00 per 1000ft
As for the M27500 I only have a 2 conductor 22 Awg
