No you can't. I have looked everywhere around me and couldn't find it. A lot of people have been getting it on eBay I think the sellers name is kangorschild

Some hobby stores may carry it; there's one in Orlando that sells Kanthal A1 32 & 34 but it's rarely in stock. Best bet is to order online. Either ebay or Silica & Wick http://silicawicks.com/

I tried calling a bunch of different hardware stores and some electrician stores in Tucson and Phoenix and I couldn't find anyone who carries it, but I get mine from eBay from the seller TEMCo good prices and very good wire.

Yeah go with Mrs Casey's vendor, I just bought from Temco, the prices aren't bad but the one she linked is probably half the price. Also Temco has caught on that us vapers are using 30g A1 and have jacked the prices to twice the price of their other guaged wire. So I bought 29g as well. Expecting it to arrive shortly in my mailbox.

If you're just looking for short piees of wire, I'd suggest either SteamMonkey or PBDragon.

I just recently got 30awg A1 kanthal from temco and it was only $8.99 with free shipping for a 100 feet. I guess I need to check that link out because I thought that was cheap. I'm always looking to save a buck.
There's more leg room on the short bus.

Ms. Casey's seller is where I got mine from. Kingorchid is a great seller, much better prices than I find elsewhere and is very quick to respond. Everything you look for in an ebay seller :grin:
