Description: Magnet wire is super useful stuff, and when you need it there’s nothing else that will work. Whether you’re winding a transformer or choke, fashioning your own motors or just playing with electromagnetism in general, nothing beats this thin-gauge enameled wire. This kit comes with three common gauges of wire: 22, 26 and 30AWG. Everyone has his or her own method for removing the enamel insulation and make a connection to this stuff, but a little abrasion with some sandpaper or scraping with a hobby knife works well. If you have an open flame handy, you can burn the enamel off as well, just be careful!

Good set, hard enough insulation but can be scratched off.
The wire is great, just what I needed. I got it in perfect condition and in a timely manner. I am currently working on my next order. I will continue to order from SparkFun. Great Job Everyone.
This stuff is awesome. Sadly though I had to knock it by one star when halfway down my 5 inch radio coil there was a kink wound into the spool. Luckily I was tapping this one and only had to back up a couple rows to cut/solder at the previous tap … but it was still annoying. Also wish you guys carried larger spools. These are plenty long for most people doing toroid windings on magnets and such, though.
