Attn: Coil builders.. re: wire

<now, is it safe for me to use 24ga 925 silver wire for my coils? or is it safer to use copper being that it has a coating on it?
Also, is 21ga just too thick? i dig that i will get less wraps, but is it just stupid to jump to 21ga? thanks.

ok i cant post a new thread so hopefully someone that knows a thing or two will see this......

i was just curious if anyone could refer me to any literature involving metal knowledge including identification.. im a new assembler and im having a few troubles with the blue spark...(its tiny, not like a dead cap. spark) im curious to know if its just something involving metal relationships or something im doing wrong with assembly...ive gone through a ton of caps. and i cant figure out sure i havent bought a load of dead capacitors, seeing as how i purchased big lots from two different suppliers... im not asking to have any secrets divulged.. but rather a point in the right direction..i already own joey d's badass book , erick ayalon's secrets book, godoy's, paco's, and dano collins' books, but they arent exactly helping with metal identity besides what can be seen with the eyes, ie: color and so on...any help would rock...thanks..peace. -mike m.

I just recently rebuilt some 8 wraps into 10s. The performance is great, However I reused the old cap as i couldn't get more in a hurry. It is important to use laminated wire otherwise you get a short circuit. I am lucky in that I worked for a motor rewinder for a while. If you have a local rewinder, you can buy wire off them and they will also be able to advise you on gauge and materials and other info that affects the end product.

24awg copper anything thicker is tricky to work with and 22awg is about max anything thinner creates extra resistance OHMS

if you use 22 then a 6 layer replaces a 8 of 24 and you won tget more than that with common washers . and 6 max will fit if you use a bobbin

dont bother trying to make some super magical coil , just use 24awg copper , 6 turn liner , 8 turns shader 10 color
