I believe there is way more than 50 ft in Jim's one pound roll. You might drop him an email to ask for the approximate length.thanks for the response. Anybody knows why the prices are so different
adams sells the #18 (50 feet) for $3 while jim gremel sells the #18 (one pound) for $12.
is there a lot more wire in 1 pound?
Yea..a junkyard. Look for metal recyclers in your area. You can buy it by the pound, it is already rolled and already annealed since they burn it to remove insulation. If it's not soft enough for you it can be annealed at home again. Just don't burn it as it will get brittle. The price will be half of what you can buy it from retailers.I usually buy it locally but I'm wondering if there's an online place that sells good copper wire for a good price.
I don't know what it is going to cost to have copper wire shipped here, but without shipping, copper is cheaper/ft than aluminium for me anyway, I know it doesn't make sense. I want to switch because I no longer like the holding power of aluminium. This is based on the cost per ft here in Canada for aluminium wire, and because I order in qty, shipping is waved.... it gets spendy!
