Q. Is 10m the largest you sell? I need to buy a lot of this and would rather buy on a bigger spool than buy 10 spools separate.
A. Hi David, thank you for your question. We only supply in 10m spools unfortunately. This Nichrome wire is mainly aimed at school science experiments.

Q. Hello Can I fire this to 1300 c without it becoming brittle?
A. Hi Jane, thanks for your question. The wire has a melting point of 1400 deg C so would more likely become soft rather than brittle.
