While organizing some bins at work today I came across a box where somebody had disassemble a Chrysler solenoid pack for some reason.
Inside was 6 coils of gorgeous wire. I forgot them at work so I'm not sure how many are on each coil but I can say it's quite a bit.

The odd thin though is that the wire measured accoring to my calipers at exactly .023"
I don't see that on any chart. It's like it's half size between 23 and 24 gauge(?).

I see another FC28-05 rewind in my future (:

Good find! I too, have a 28 on the desk that needs wire. It's a BM motor that came with a short and could use some 24ga. Did you measure with the insulation on, or did you scrape it off first?

I measure with the insulation on.
I double checked with a micrometer instead of the calipers and it's right on.
.023".
A chart I found says it's 24BWG.

Find a motor rewinder in your area and pay them a visit with your motor and tell them what your trying to do and from my experience they'll gladly donate some wire.
I wish they would charge me though I feel bad going bad when I need more, I do rotate between 3 different shops so I don't LOOK like a leech.

No application form for employment. NO WIRE.

what kind of motor are you rewinding? I just landed a PZ brushless in the water last night, and could use a tip or two on putting the magic blue smoke back in.

I did a fc28-05 a few times, Still my favorute mote to date (:
Search around there's a lot of good threads on rewinding.
Carefully take apart the motor counting the number of turns on each tooth and measure the thickness of the wire as a starting point.

are you going to use this wire to make a brushless motor?

Sooner or later.
