thermostat wire
« on: October 28, 2012, 05:44:15 PM »
I have been looking for 6 wire thermostat wire and nobody in my area will sell me less than 200 feet.  I only need about 5o, actually 25 would do, but I would like to buy enough for the front of the bus once I get there.  Anyone know a retailer who is willing to sell cuts off the roll?

Thanks
Mike.

Lowes? maybe you can get 8 wire or use 2- 3 or 4 wire pieces. Most Lowes sells this stuff by the foot.

Yea I can get the 2,3, or 4 wire at Home Depot, not sure about the 8 wire.  I was thinking about using a couple different groupings of the wire to make up for it, but would have liked to keep it all color coded if I could.  It's not worth spending the 150+ bucks on 200 feet just to keep it color coded though.
