What are some of the applications for 30 gauge wire?

Way back the larger diameter (AWG???) wire wrap wire was teflon coated. Later the smaller .014" wire is kynar coated. I have a few thousand yards of the small stuff and its what I use for LEDs, opto sensors, etc. hopefully Dave will be offering appropiate wire strippers. A lot of strippers will have trouble with teflon. I use No Niks which work great but may be NLA. Pete

We probably, at some point, offer a wire stripper but at present not. IMO the No-Niks strippers are great but cost prohibitive at $40.00 or more each. Dave, LBR

I use #30 wire-wrap wire, works great and the insulation is very robust. However, wire-wrap wire is solid wire, not stranded.

I realize you're not asking a trick question, but here's a trick answer. Another application of 30 gauge wire is to make stranded wire. For example, 22 gauge stranded wire is typically made with 7 strands of 30 gauge wire!

I like the solid wire since it is easier to form into a shape and have it stay put. I can route it away from pinch points and it will stay there. I don't worry about the current carrying capability of the stranded wire versus solid wire cause my LEDs are running at such a low frequency (not much of a skin effect). I would advise against using either magnet wire or teflon coated wire in applications where fret abrasion or physical pressure is a concern. But you can always slip shrink tubing...

I asked because I have an old spool of 30 gauge cloth covered solid wire and a spool of 28 gauge plastic covered stranded wire. The stranded roll is silver. I purchased it at a computer show, where I was told it was for wiring backplanes. (Who knows?) I've used some of the 28 gauge for something or other, I have never used the 30 gauge. As far as strippers go: After using a friend's, I purchased a set of Klein strippers. I think they work great. I just stripped a bit off of the ends of my...

Wire-wrap wire is 30 gauge, but it is solid. I still use it on lighting projects, especially when I don't want to solder(some LED applications).

Isn't this the wire used with wire wrap tools on bread board back in the day? Another alternative is to use magnet wire which is coated with a fairly tough insulated coating that can be scraped off for soldering where necessary.

I'm not old enough to remember that (only 73). Magnet wire is good for a lot of applications except where it is passing through metal as it will sometimes rub on a metal edge and short out. Sometimes a lot of aggravation. Better to use the Teflon coated where you are dealing with metal structure. Dave, LBR

When you use this size wire do you put a .5 amp fuse on it to protect it. A friend has a lot of lights with fine wire like this.

The No-Nik tool is pretty specialized. Each tool is sized for a particular wire gauge and meant for very thin insulation. Back in the day it was used for wire wrap wire with thin kynar insulation. Not as good or even useless if the insulation is too thick. Pete

Nice tool. I have the poor man's version below, acquired at a Rat Shack a few years ago. It's adjustable (via the nut and bolt fixture on it) to allow the strip opening to be micro tweaked to get it to precisely the right size. That the good news. The bad news is the only way to effectively set the opening to said " precisely the right size" is through trial and error testing on the given wire being used. Ergo, I inevitably end up wasting an inch or two of wire in that adjustment phase...

I use my No-Nik all the time, the #30 wire-wrap wire is perfect for lighting in shells. It doesn't take up room, and can be routed easily and just tacked in place. I got introduced to the No-Nik tool in the 60's when wire-wrap was king, don't see it much anymore.

If your budget for a Kynar stripping tool is $0, here are two methods. I have used both methods and they really work! These are not my videos. Here's a close-up of my modified nail-clipper. The donor needle is shown at left - note how it too gets deformed (note nicks near tip). A couple suggestions. Start from the tip and work up the size of the hole. Obviously you are trying to make the hole a tad more than the 0.01" wire diameter, but less than the ~0.02" insulation diameter. Unless you...

I think the .012 No-Nik should work with .010 wire without too much issue. AAMOF, that's what I use on he .010 wire, I just checked. I never even gave it a thought previously, they've worked flawlessly for #30 wire for years. Note the diameter of the wire and the designation on the strippers in the shot below. Ignore the red pointer, that's for metric measurements, it's a dual-scale caliper.

I think Dave is looking at the chart for Birmingham and Stubs Iron. On this side of the pond we use AWG (American Wire Gauge) which says #30 is .010" Two people separated by a common language. Pete

Dave, virtually all the tables I find say that #30 is .01" diameter, and the .012 diameter is #28 gauge.

Dave, what kind of insulation is on your wire? If its Kynar then the tool you bought may not work but if its just about anything else (read thicker) then you might be OK. Pete

No. Unless you intend to run a higher than usual current for this size wire. An LED connected to this wire is perfectly safe. The LED will require only 20 milliamps of current max. As GunRunnerJohn pointed out somewhere else, the size of wire required for this small amount of current is not visible to the naked eye. A fuse is not necessary just because the wire is small.

Teflon is a PITA to work with. Is this for some high temperature application? Its usually thicker than kynar but still no joy. Pete
