Electric wire

Post by MichaelG92 » Tue Jul 03, 2018 6:35 am

I’ve been looking for some red and black electrical wire for a while without much luck, and when I went to my local Screwfix yesterday to pick up another part they said that not only do they not have any, they don’t know where I could get some.

I think I found some on eBay, is this the right stuff? I just need it to attach to my motors to make a 4wd pusher.

If not, where do you recommend I look?

Hi Michael.
The right hon. Rory Mangles says he uses 22 awg wire as standard in all his antweights and he is the Don so I recommend that.

Here's a link:

I recently bought this pack and they sell individual colours as well.

Thanks both! I’m going to get some red and black for continuity, but I suppose it doesn’t what colour they are? The different colours don’t actually mean anything other than just to differentiate?

That is correct, sir. As long as you know.
