Thanks for all of the listmembers help but I just ordered some mag wire
today from EIS. They sold me three 10 pound rolls for $17.00 each. I would
not have bought that much but the guy said they had a $50 minimum order.
Even though I did'nt like the minimum order requirement it's still the
cheapest magnet wire I ever bought.
