Re: [TCML] Trouble with eBay wire

Hi Nicholas,

A difference of 0.25" in diameter makes a difference of about 54 feet in wire length, a difference of 1 turn per inch makes a difference of 17.5 feet in wire length in 17.5 inches of coil length. Exactly how precise are your measurement?

Subject: [TCML] Trouble with eBay wire

I bought 24 AWG wire from an eBay dealer named Jim Whyte. He has
thousands of sales already so I figure that he's legit. My purchase
was supposed to be 1000' of 24 AWG copper magnet wire. I got my
shipment within the allotted time. I began to wrap my secondary coil.
I was going for 20" tall, 4" diameter. After hand winding all the
wire, I measure the wind and find it to be only 17.5" long. After some
crude calculations, I found the total length of the wire to be about

I emailed the seller to get a new coil of magnet wire, and he assures
me that he sent me exactly 1000' and won't be sending me another coil.
What should I do about this? Should I contact PayPal and dispute the
