    Hoping someone can tell me how durable Kidney Puncher wire SPOOLS are?

    Looking to replenish my supply of 28 ga. SS 316L wire. 100’ of wire will probably last me a long, long time, so I want to spool to do the same.

    I’ve been using UD SS 316L wire up to now - which has a very durable spool with lots of holes in the lip that make storage a breeze. Bought some Lightning Vape (Kanthal) wire a while back and the spools were so thin and brittle that they almost immediately started chipping and cracking. Won’t go there again. Temco SS 316L wire is back-ordered 3 months.

    Kidney Puncher carries some “Mod Guard” atty spacers that I could use and I came across their wire, so...

    Funny you should ask - of all the spools of wire I have in my toolbox (15 spools?), the 100-foot spool of NiChrome wire from Kidney Puncher is the only one that is broken. It's a very sturdy spool, but arrived with the edges broken in three places. It looks beat up but still functions, so I don't care.

    AVS has 40% off wire and coils. Their spools hold up well for me. I'm not hard on them and they have their own box. Code CYBERMONDAY

    Advanced Vape Supply. Great service and wires. Prebuilt coils perform well too.

    I've been happy with Temco SS316L from Amazon. The wire is good and the spools last longer than it takes to use up 100' of wire. I"ve seen no cracks or chips in the plastic.

    It's been a while since I ordered wire from Kidney Puncher, but I never had spool cracks before from their wire. Maybe they changed vendors.
