I've got a couple partial rolls in my shop, black and I think some green. If you can't locate any let me know I can mail you some for what it cost me per foot.(I'll have to look up my cost)

Have you checked with your local electric supply shop? Does it have to be 10awg? I paid $0.60 a foot for 6awg THHN at my nearest shop, half what Lowe's wanted.

You are better off buying 10g cord from Lowes. Then you would have either 3 or 4 wires. I just bought 10' of 4 wire 10g cord and it was about $30. That wired my entire panel. Of course you have to strip off the outer sheath and separate the wires, but its worth it.

Isn't that $0.75 per foot?

Cool, thanks. I've got a few local leads to follow up on first...and the extension cord idea is a good one.

For some reason, my HD & Lowes wire stations don't carry a very wide selection of wire.

Thanks for the offer, but Michigan is just a tad out of the way...

About how many miles are you from Bessemer? My brother has a ski cabin up in that neighborhood.

We re-wired the hot-tub to code, but still need to finish about 12" of outlet wiring....

We have been trying to arrange a trip for about a year now.

I could drag along some homebrew.

How much power are you running through it? Is it just low amp control wiring?

I have a friend who builds guitar effects pedals. I'll ask him.
