'[EE] tinned wire from .cn or .hk?'

Hi!

I'm mostly too lazy to create PCB's for my creations, so I'm usually
building everything on prototyping boards. For most connections thin
kynar wire is used, but sometimes it's better to use tin-coated wire
without insulation. Usually I'm collecting cut-off component leads, or
a strand from a multi-stranded wire, or so on. But there must be a
product for that!
I see there is something like that on farnell, in tiny spools, for
their pencil-tool.

Probably somebody has noticed thin tinned copper wire on a some sort
of dx-style cheap-chinese-stuff websites? Their search is usually not
very helpful, so it's easy to miss it even if it's actually there.

I'm in Europe, so this is probably quite a good option, thanks. Even
50 grams is a huge amount, 700meters of 0.1mm wire could be enough for
my lifetime:)

Belden sells rolls of bare tinned copper wire all the way from 10 AWG on up through #26.  I currently keep rolls of the #10, 12, 18, 22, 24, 26 wire around - its darned handy for a multitude of applications.

I'll dig up some typical part numbers if you need.

Are you after single or multi stranded stuff? Either way go down to your local model railway shop and peruse the selection of wire available, especially that supplied by Brawa. They do some exceptionally fine multistrand stuff, don't know about single strand.

Same advice goes to our US cousins, check out your local model railway shop or supplier.

Seems like they are a maker, so their product must be available somewhere else?
Anyway, i need that stuff in so tiny amounts, it should be much more
appropriate to get it at some diy-stores, but I can not find where.

IDEA: you could use some junk relay (I think they're easy to obtain!),
get the copper wire from it, which is insulated, but insulation melts
with solder.

Be careful here - some enameled wire is solderable, some isn't.  Anything intended to work warm or hot is definitely NOT solderable.

I have both types here at work.
