Default Source for solid hookup wire

Wow, all of a sudden it's impossible to find solid hookup wire on Ebay. Catalogs usually offer huge rolls only. Online sellers often supply stranded only, and often don't offer discounts for 25' or 100'. Aughhhhhhhhhhhhh! I'm hoping for good ol' 600V 20AWG UL1015 solid wire. Can anyone help me? Thanks, and Happy New Year.

Just received an order from the attached company and saw this in the catalog. It is 22 awg, solid, and cheap. Good luck.

Go to your local hardware store and ask for "bell wire."

Hey Sy,

I've definitely come across Bell wire. Was never sure if it was rated to 600V.

I've been using it in tube amps for a while and never had an insulation failure. It's probably worthwhile looking for the UL rating on the reel you cut it from, though I'll admit I never have.
