  • Like a boss.

  • Manufacturer (I think): Shieldex-US
    Datasheet (234/34 4ply):
    At first I was inclined to say just use AWG standards for current per wire diameter. However I haven't had much luck melting copper with a lighter. This thread melts quite well. I, too, was hoping to find a "don't exceed this" on the datasheet.

  • I started working with the spool I got over christmas and did have some problems with fraying especially when cutting it. I found a decent workaround was to wrap the area I planned to cut in a 1/8" wide strip of scotch tape and cut it in the middle. This left me with a shoelace type end that was also helpful for threading through holes. Hopefully this idea assists someone other than me : )
    Edit: Mother-in-law (seamstress) said "just melt the ends with a lighter silly." Also works quite well.

  • nice work, no brick and mortar store has ever come close to providing this kind of experience for customers. Fighting the refresh was so much more enjoyable than reading news about governments collapsing or more dead birds in another state. A free 40 bones will get more than one project of the ground in my world. Hells yes sparkfun crew, well met!
    I formally request a 3 day IT crew paid vacation!

No public wish lists :(
