Hi

If you can still get single posts, soldering the part and the post to perf board, then wrapping to the post will work fine. I haven't gone looking for them in a long time...

Bob

CB,
Jackpot!!!!! I found a wire wrapping supplier and they offer every size bit and sleeve for AWG and Metric wire. They also offer multipaks of pins like you suggested ( I ordered a 100 to start with) for use on the perf boards. In case youre interested the company name is OK Industries or Jonard and they are located in New york City. I hunted at great length and they offer electric, pnuematic, manual and hand operated wrap and unwrap tools for a pretty reasonable price. I ordered a pneumatic gun and 3 sets if bits and sleeves to cover 20- 30 Ga wire. The also offer silver plated solid copper core wire at a pretty decent price too. Ebay has the same wire but it is from China so there would be a two week wait for the wire to arrive and I question whether it is really silver from there or not. Just figured that I would let you know that the stuff is still available but you gotta look a little deeper on the web to find it all. Wish me luck!!!! Pic as soon as my inspection scope arrives and I get it figured out and working. 30 Ga is too small to see even with a 2X magnifying glass, you need 5X to see it clearly.( I have poor eyesight in my old age)

Hi

Even with quadrafocals I still need a microscope from time to time....

OK stuff should be perfectly fine. They have been doing wire wrap for a long time. The thing to watch for with the silver wire is tarnish. Don't keep the wire in the kitchen when you are cooking a big batch of tomato soup (or playing with fuming nitric acid...). The plating is pretty thin and the tarnish will essentially dissolve it.

Glad you found a better supplier than you had. I think that 24 ga is probably a reasonable target for wire. For high current, solder something.

Hope it gets there soon!

Bob

CB,
I bid on a few items tha don't end for a few more days, the stuff I got on Buy it now should be here by Monday or Tuesday. I found the machined pins with the solder holes on top to mount the components and the nice sharp square psts for the wraps. I think that will solve most if not all of the issues I had to begin with. I'll let you know how the OK stuff works once it all gets here. Heres my solution to the quad focals: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251096296369...84.m1439.l2649. Those are 20X and have lenses for both eyes. I ordered 2 pairs since they were really cheap and I had to wait to get em...

Hi

If you ever come across one at an affordable price, these are pretty nice:

A bit big, but nice.

CB,
That looks like a rich mans toy to me. It's huge too. I would have to clear out 1/2 of my office to use that one. I did find something a little more reasonably priced in a more usable size though. I'm not sure I am willing to put even that much into a viewer though. I'll just have to wait a while till my eyesight gets that bad...
Heres the link to the items I found.

Hi

The thing is indeed huge. Even at 10 cents on the dollar I couldn't afford one. Of course you never know what might show up in some surplus shop...

Yeah, I have found some really good prices lately on machine tools like lathes and mills. They seem to be appearing more often as the economy drags along. The last one I picked up was just about the price of scrap iron by weight. I cleaned it up and lubed it down and it works nicely for what I do in my little shop. Before I got jacked up I was building a metal fab shop with a CNC plasma cutter, and all manner of metal tools like lathes, mills and wheels. Being a former welder also brings all of that equipment to the mix too. If I ever get well enough I will restart my shop and do a little side work when I feel like.

Hi

All you need to find is one outfit that was doing some sort of assembly with them that's now out of business. They are big enough that I doubt people will be going crazy to get them. You might wait a while until they pop up though...
