The key is to not let them put it on the folding hex spooler. When I need the
solid wire, I either take an empty spool with me to dispense it without those
hex bends, or just buy the whole 500' (8 gauge that is) I did make the mistake
of buying it after they had put the bends in the copper, and I never did wind
it into a primary.
