High quality Nichrome80 resistance wire by Twisted Messes is composed of 20% Chromium and 80% Nickel. It’s a low resistance wire under normal circumstances. When dealing with the thinner gauges of this wire (32-44g) the resistance is much higher than you’d expect.
The 20-26g is used for single strand coils while the 27-28g is used for core wires of multi-strand Claptons like Alien Claptons but the thinner gauges (32-46g) will not perform well as a standard coil so if you’ve never used high gauge wire before, make sure you’re buying the appropriate wire for your build before purchasing. The thinner gauges (32-44g) are for Clapton coils, multi-strand twisting or to add a bit of colour to your coil-art.
The best Nichrome wire for making coils. The 40g comes off the spool like a dream, perfectly straight with no blemishes in the wire or sticking on the spool, and as such core wires don’t even need straightening before attaching to the drill and swivel. Not the cheapest wire but no waste and when you work out the cost of making the coil it is certainly a lot cheaper than buying pre-made coils. Great service from Ohmz, the goods arrived the day after ordering!
High quality wire, impeccable and very fast delivery, I recommend ohmz for their responsiveness.
