RE: [TCML] gold secondary
hi finn and guys
thanks for that looks like that may be an option
ive just recieved the quote for the gold "plated" wire $2.04 per foot and they only have 415 feet in stock
you know what they can do with that quote !!!
the british supplier can supply 796 meters of gold on copper for £35.00
looks like ill be putting my own insulation on it !
for that price i think the time and effort is worth it
now all i have to do is find this so called uv laquer
can anybody point me to this as i have never heard of it before
