I know this has been asked/discussed, but I cannot find the posts. What's the best place for the SS 500 mesh, and what's the best place for wire? I need some. Thanks.

I think most members here purchase their wire through ebay. I am sure someone will post a link to the correct vendor soon.

I bought my mesh from Steam Monkey. http://www.steammonkey.com/category_s/1825.htm Best price I have found for smaller pieces of wire to use while you find what works best for you. :mrgreen:

It seems I find many places that don't have all I want. When I started with RBAs I wanted to try different varieties, SteamMonkey was the best bet. The 12x12 inch mesh pieces will make a shit-ton of wicks, and the wire is not a bad price for a small length.

I recently picked up some Kanthal from PBDragon, dirt cheap I think it was like 20 cents a foot.

ribbon wire would not be 30-32g.There is no such thing. 30-32G is the size. Ribbon wire does not come in that size. It is flat so the 30 or 32G would not be considered ribbon It comes in sizes like. 0.8*0.1mm / .031*.004" but as for where to find some I would like to know too. I can tell you where to get the size I listed here if you are interested but I haven't tried that size personally http://www.ebay.com/itm/221186603167?va ... 1438.l2649

I got my Kanthal wire on eBay from Kingorchid. This vendor was recommended in another thread months ago and did not disappoint.

I have looked everywhere and steammonkey has the best prices I have seen for 500 mesh. Lat I checked they were OOS but maybe they re-upped.
