WTB nichrome wire (fertilizer, and ball bearings)

Post by StroppyChops » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:18 pm

I'm looking for a spool of nichrome wire (which is what's in your toaster, if you have one) in Phnom Penh - any leads, please?

Oh, I don't need the fertilizer or ball bearings, I already have those! :wink:

cannot, afaik.
Aliexpress, or buy a toaster, hairdryer etc, and disassemble.
I recommend buying a used akira brand, you'd be doing humanity a favor by removing it from potential use.

Up my sleeve as a last resort.

IDK what gauge you need, but nichrome is also used for vaping but it's thin. If that will work, you know where to look.
