    Just a personal gripe:
    if you see the wire you want on ebay and its temco. go to the website direct

    Temco is on our side, as such they set up several informative pages about wire, resistance, materials, surface area etc. these guys are not just vendors they are very well trained and informed in what they do and produce many products as well as provide much technical support in their respective industries.

    And i hate seeing ebay get any part of their profits.

    I personally use The Vape Mesh Company, since they sell the wire, the silica, the ekowool, the mesh, the ribbon kanthal and the stainless steel cable all in one place.

    Upside for me, they are UK based, so fast/cheap shipping to my house off base here.

    Downside for you, they'll have to ship it to the US to get it to you, so will cost more and take a little longer.

    You couldn't go wrong with the other suggestions here though.

    Not to high-jack the thread, but what are the relative advantages and disadvantages of the various (SS Mesh, SS Rope/ Cable, et al) for building a wick?

    I concur 100%

    I got 100 feet of Kanthal A1 32AWG for $6.08 from them shipped. Bought Friday, received Monday. I am sure that I will never use that much, but it beats buying it for $1 per foot like the B&M near me charges.
