any real good…it’s less than $20lb, get a pound of 18awg is a
great wire for beginners and experimenting. Has the advantage of
easy aspect ratio figuring, being 1mm dia…Byzantine 3.45 ID,
Jens Pind Linkage 3mm ID, Turkish Round 3.5mm ID, Half Persian
This is the same material as what other suppliers call rich-low, red
