    Lightbulb Cables & wires 0,1mm

    Hi,

    I am looking for wires 0,1mm to wire my overhead. Where I can find? I searched my local market but I found only 0,22mm.
    With best regards,
    Achilles

    Wire is usually expressed in gauges, as in 20ga, 22ga, etc.

    Boeing uses both sizes depending upon the load. I'm using 22ga for everything except the load busses. For those I'm using 18ga and 16ga.

    If I read your post correctly, that is extremely fine wire. Probably too delicate for anything but winding a magnet or inductor.
