    Hey guys,
    I agree with Bob(aametalmaster) that Jeff Noland has the best prices on .023 wire. For those of you who also use a lot of .035, here's the best bargain I found in quite a while. When I first read it, I thought there was a typo or the listing was phony and I would file a complaint with E-Bay. So, I ordered (1) roll at $6 + $4s/h = $10. It came in 2 days and was indeed 10lbs ER70S-6(.035) labeled Campbell-Hausfeld. I put it in my Challenger 172 & ran 10 beads about 12" long. Excellent wire with no issues. I ordered another (6) rolls to have some stock since the price of everything is getting insane anymore. If any of you want a bargain, here's the listing:

    aametalmaster, funny you should provide a link to that Auction. I had it in my eBay watch list already waiting to see what the results were on my question about wire size .

    Hankj, thanks for the info.

    The consensus seems to be to go for it.

    Thanks!

    I sure wouldn't pay 35 bucks for a roll of wire either. Here is 2 rolls for like 41 bucks...Bob

    .023, .024, .025 - makes no never mind.

    Same drive roller, same tip, no matter what the numbers are!

    Sully2,

    That's kinda what I was thinking but I hate to spend $35 for wire only to find out it won't work. At the same time I can't see where .001" could possibly make that much difference.

    I suppose the only real way to find out would be to order some

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Brad

    Thanks!

    Dont see why not? I doubt the OD of the wire is even gauged any closer than .001
