Default Need some new wire for my projects

Hey guys, I have large bunches of teflon insulated silver plated copper wire. Its great for use with low level signals, and even not too bad for wiring inside of speakers, but its too stiff at 16-10 guage when trying to wire up the power supplies. I was thinking of finding a good copper wire with a poly or vinyl jack instead of teflon. Anyone have a recomendation.

One size I really need for the chip amp is 16 guage, as the 14 guage is too large to fit into the hole anyway, forcing me to trim my 14 guage wire so it fits. Any recomendations would be appreciated.

Automotive supply stores sell rolls of wire in different colors that usually range from #10 to #22. It’s inexpensive and makes pretty good hook-up wire for electronics. I usually try to find “tinned” wire rather than bare copper. It solders easier.
