Hook Up Wire for Hobby Modeling Projects
Kynar 28Awg Electric WireChoose from 25-ft, 50-ft, or 100-ft Kynar spools.
If you need a bit of connection wire to bring your power supply out to your LEDs, use this 28Awg Kynar. This Military Grade wire is easy to solder, very high quality, high conductivity for its size, and is the same wire that we use for all of our LEDs.
Small but mighty!
This wire has a nice slim jacket of Kynar that makes it easy to fit into small spaces. The wire has a diameter of .021 inch, yet it is fully capable of handling 36 volts of power at 5 amps.
How to strip this wire?Kynar it has a tough outer jacket and a finer gauge than most wire strippers can handle. We thought this video would help:
- Heat up your solder iron, any soldering iron will do
- Cut your wires to the desired length, this leaves un-stripped ends
- Lay your wire on the paper towel holding the wire between two fingers about 3/4" above the cut end
- Place the tip of the soldering iron 1/4" up from the end
- Wait two seconds for the jacket on the wire to heat up
- Pull the wire out from under the iron, the wire comes clean!
- Wipe the iron on a paper towel; it does not damage the iron in any way
Ideally suited for many applications, this wire is OFHC (oxygen-free, high-conductivity copper wire) and provides a very flexible and very abrasion-resistant hook-up wire. The wire is a single solid copper strand and easily connects to other wires by either twisting or soldering.
