Is there anyone that have a handtool for wrapping 24-26awg for sale ?
it's a smaller project i working on so i don't want to spend over $100 for a new one,
also a couple of feet Kynar wire in 26awg is interesting.

Hrm, Digikey K105-ND is showing $31.85 USD. Might be your best bet for new.

Yeah i looked at that too but that say for 30awg and i don't know if it will work for 24-26awg :confused:
it's been 33 years since i did wire wrapping so i haven't a clue myself.

Honestly, the only time I see 24-26AWG wirewrap is in vintage Marantz. I think you're looking at an industrial wrap gun with interchangeable tips for that >_<

Good luck!

I guess that is pretty heavy gauge for wrapping small low power circuits , reason i asking is that on my latest project
in form of a theremin without a pcb just a perfboard with wire wrap pins and the only tool i found that's was very cheap
was for 30awg and i bought a couple of meters in 4 different colors of Kynar wire in 30awg.
looked little thin that wire but power in this circuit is around 30-50mA at 7.5v so im pretty sure a 30 gauge will work fine
for this application and the wiring for other components such pot's , antennas , power and switches are in 24 gauge
regular hook-up wire.
Another reason for this project is a retro flashback for me 8-) building something with old fashion tool's like a
"radio plier" to push wrap pins into board like the old day's.
