    Where can I get light wire on LI?

    I need some light/thin electric wire. Braided/twisted. Either 20, 22 or 24 gauge.
    In the past I would have bought it at Radio Shack but with them gone I don't know where else to try.
    My local mom&pop hardware only has 16.
    I can order it but I really wanted to have it for a project today.
    Western south shore would be great.

    Any ideas?

    Home Depot and Lowe’s both carry it. Actually I know they have 18 but don’t know if the have any thinner

        Too brittle and I really wanted braided.

            Category wire is usually solid, but handset cord is braided, and it's actually braided around a cloth core for extra flexibility. But the gauge is VERY thin.
            Computer patch cables are often 26 gauge stranded.

                  I've found things at Karps in Northport I couldn't find anywhere else.
                  Might be worth a call.

                    I managed to find some 18g at a local auto parts shop that was good enough for today's project.
                    I'll have to order some 22 or 24 online.

                    Thanks.
