Re: Aluminum magnet wire?

I thought that someone would bring up the fact that some Aluminum wire is 
electroplated with copper. The stuff is easy to solder and I know that since 
I was the one elected to rewire my Father's house back to copper (because the 
lugs would never stay tight enough in the outlet and would start to smoke) 
that when a large current was applied "vacuum cleaner" the wires would jump 
in the wall a whole lot more than copper (I tested it with an indicator 
gage). Please build a sec, out of Al 
as I would love to know the outcome
