I have used PVC covered machine tool wire MTW/THHN/TFFN with outer vinyl
jacket for several large coils including my Twin Coil and it works fine. It
is available in spools up to 2500 feet at almost any large commercial
electrical contractor supply place. The price varies with the current price
of copper, but is always very reasonable IMHO.

My Twin Coil can be seen at:




Safe coiling,
