Default Stranded 10awg THHN wire

Does anyone have a good source for it? All I can find is 500' rolls of it, whereas I only need a few feet to wire the inside of my control box. Any help would be great.

Of course, if you have some laying around that you could spare, I'd gladly buy it off you. Thanks brewing bros and sises!

The hardware stores should sell it by the foot.

I know around here both lowes and home depot do. Esp if you're not picky on color

I thought the big box stores sold it by the foot. My local hardware does.

The Home Depot here has a nice selection of THHN stranded. Even in 4 or 5 different colors.

Really? My HD & Lowes don't sell it. I'll go back and ask if I can special order some, though.

As far as true hardware stores go, the depot and lowes chased them all out years ago.

Seriously? Every HD/Lowes I've ever been in have a wire station where you can buy anything from bell wire to 6-3. I have some 10g that you can have but I think it would cost more to ship than to buy it local.

Dammed hardware Walmarts!

Here's my local store. I swear you could almost build a brewery one stop here.
Roadtrip?
