>>> Magnet wire:
I get magnet wire from the electric motor shop. I ask them if they have
any left over rolls that are paritally used. They don't have to spool the
wire for me (which saves labor costs), and if I go at noon, I get the guy
who cuts me a deal :-).
You may be able to talk someone at an electric motor company into selling
you some wire if you show them pictures.
>>> Transformers: Try some other shops. Some will sell them for $10 each.
I think that he is asking too much unless he guarantees them for a reasonable
period of time. Of course for about two hundred bucks I understand that you
can get pole pigs from The Transformer Bank. (See Richard Quick's sources
posting a few days ago).
I got most of my transformers for $10 each. I got them from a friend who
got them for that, and I ordered some from a guy in the TCBA newsletter.
