Chip, Eric, ALL

I've personally used the local Richmond VA EIS office and have
received good service, reasonable prices (for new wire).  Most
magnet wire is Philips/Dodge brand.  EIS also sells the new
anticorona, super insulation magnet wire for winding Variable
Frequency Drive (VFD, Inverter) motors which see a PWM chopped
wave.  Insulation has significantly higher dielectric strength
and corona resistance, at a cost premium (about 30% more when
checked about a year ago. FWIW.
