Hi John, Thank you for your comments! Interesting point about Kynar. I didn't know that it's cross-linked. Also only thought of it as 30-AWG. However, I see it here : WesBell Electronics ...in sizes up to 20AWG and in lots of colors. 22AWG goes for $22.50@100ft. [Click on the part numbers to order even though they don't look like links.] Only thing is, the UL versions of the wire don't have voltage ratings, though the MIL versions are rated at 300V. Kynar dielectric strength is around 1kV/mil and the wire uses 5-mils. Of course, voltage rating is more complicated than dielectric strength.

Also Cross Linked PVDF (xl-pvdf) aka Kynar. found on mil spec wire such as type 44 and type 55. great stuff but, yeah you pay a price for it.
