Thread: Wire Sources
07-14-2008, 03:42 PM #1
Im getting all ready to start rewiring my sim soon and was hoping that someone here could suggests a really good source of wire that I can order, and what gauge. I think Ive been using 18 or 20 gauge.
I found 500' of 18 gauge for about 28.99 including shipping. Is that a good deal?

That is a good deal, but!
Tomlin.. Thats Overkill buddy. 18AWG at 12V can sustain like 5-6 Amps...
If you want to do a really neat wiring Job, I would suggest a 22AWG or 24AWG Ribbon (rainbow Wire).
You can get it much Cheaper.________________________
