'[OT] wire'

Does anyone know where to get small gauge(20-22 AWG) wire with a lot of
fine strands?  All of the catalogs I look in for small gauge wire has
only seven strands.  I have had too many problems with wires not being
flexible and breaking when soldered to boards.  Most cheap toys, etc.
have very flexible wire with bunches of strands.

I have some cheap stepper motors with 22AWG leads that have about 40
strands of superfine wire.  That wire is made by Metulurgica Bresciana
in Italy.  All I can find is links to web sites in German and Italian.
I don't necessarially need that brand, just any low cost very fine
stranded wite that is easy to find.

<x-flowed>You may be able to use stranded wire from HI Q, low loss inductors and
flyback transformers. Furthermore, the stranded wire used in motor brushes
is very flexable, durable, low R, and multi stranded. I beleive it has
beryllium copper or phospher bronze content??
Good luck, Mark

 I use one main technique, but it is very SLOW.  I strip only a
millimetre or less of the wire, tin the tip of the strands, then use
this purchase to pull the insulation back and twist the strands.  I then
tin the exposed, twisted strands and allow the insulation to slip back
and cover the tinned area.

 It is very important that the junction of solder-tinned and untinned
strands not coincide with the end of the insulation cover, or a stress
point is created where the wire is stiffened on one side by the
insulation and the tinning on the other.

 The other effect of this procedure is that the twisted strands remain
together if re-soldering is required.

 One alternative is to make the connections and then dob glue over the
point where the insulation finishes against the PCB so that the
insulation cover is rigidly fixed to the board.

 Really?  Not what I would have thought!

you could try mini microphone cable.

Contact Tim Marks at http://www.fmadirect.com

They have some really good flexible wire.

We use a product called SuperFlex almost exclusively for internal wiring in
our testers.  It contains many very fine strands and stands up to repeated
bending well.
