Default hook up wire

where would I find a reasonably priced hook up wire that will be good with voltages up to 500 VDC? Could someone suggest something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

ebay: there is usually a large amount of teflon (or similar) silver plated copper wire at very reasonable prices. Good choice of gauges and construction.

If you check the prices at Antique Electronic Supply,
the 20AWG solid cloth covered copper wire is 0.18 cents a foot if you buy a 50' roll.
$8.78 for 50', that's a grest price !
