What spec is the wire? Mil-W-22759/16, or...?
MIL-C-27500 or similar for the multi-wire cables?
Colors available for single wire, or white only?
Thanks.

I have bought wire from Jack before. He's a stand up guy.

I'll second Electrogunners comments. I've purchased wire from Jack and he was great to work with.

Hi Jack,

Is this Tefzel insulation, or earlier stuff? Milspec numbers?

Thanks,

Charlie

Is Tefzel wire with MIL numbers visible. Not old fuzzy insulation type wire.

Thanks for this indication it has MIL numbers. What's important is to which MIL SPEC the wire was manufactured.

As an example:
MIL-W-22759/16 is intended for airframe wiring
MIL-W-22759/9 is intended for wiring inside aviation appliances (think inside avionics boxes)
The differences in insulation performance between /9 and /16 are substantial. That's why I and others have been asking WHICH MIL spec is stamped on the wires.

Unfortunately, that doesn't help. There was a time between cloth and Tefzel that there were other plastics used for insulation in milspec wire. All would be ok for our planes, but Tefzel is the really good stuff.

I guess there are regional variations in language that can catch one off guard. In the vernacular of West Texas we would interpret the above statement as it is "20 cents a foot coiled and mailed priority". Seller got back to me and apparently it really means just coiled. Shipping is extra. Locals here would have probably worded it as "20 cents a foot coiled plus shipping". Simple misunderstanding.
