    Trying to find SS 316(L) wire in Canada? (NO chinese wire though please)

    Hi, trying to find 316 (L) Stainless Steel wire. Ok, not quite TC related but close enough.

    I am not great with specs but know that I prefer 26 gauge Kanathal so not sure if i should be looking for 26 g SS or not?
    And can anyone please provide a link for good quality wire IF such a place exists where i don't have to pay an extra $20 for shipping on top?
    Don't mind doing so IF i discover I like it but hesitant to pay $40 total just to see iF I like it.

    Can't seem to find any Canadians that know much about SS wire and can help locate it.
    Hoping to be surprised

    Thx

    Actually let me qualify that, YOUDE is the only acceptable Chinese wire...not sure why but i love everything by Youde

    Presently looking up Malin Lockwire on Ama......but difficult with all the numbers so i would prefer ease of Youde perhaps

    Thanks, will go check this out right now

    Thanks for the help. You are right. Can Vape does sell Youde SS wire. Normally I WONT buy chinese wire but Youde is the one exception. I happen to just love all of their products. That said, still not my first choice. Noticed that DashVapes also sells a SS wire. Unfortuntely I find the staff there knows very little about wire so I woudl have to be 100% sure of what i was buying before going in there.
    Still working on Amazon for this wire though.....just working out which one i need....if that fails, CanVape will be my next stop.

    Thanks again. Much appreciated! For anyone else that might stumble upon this, here is a quote I read somewhere else about Malin wire, that can be purchased through Amazon.

    Again. If you want wire CERTIFIED by law as an aerospace component, use Malin Lockwire. Depending on the gauge, its 304, 316 or 317 stainless. There is no difference between these alloys unless you plan on welding with them, which I hope is not the case. $20 for 600 ft of 22 gauge with free 2 day delivery from amazon. 28 gauge gives you 1600 feet.

    pilotshq.com/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=9&products_id=63 33

    Use this to convert wire diameter to gauge

    AWG to square mm Wire Gauge Conversion

    0.32 is 20 gauge 0.25 is 22 gauge. .015 is 26 gauge

    How much easier can this be?

    Or would you prefer Chinese wire of unknown quality, at $4 for 30 feet.

    .13 a foot for mystery Chinese wire, or 0.0125 for inspected, certified US made aerospace grade 304, 316 0r 317 Stainless Steel wire.

    Malin SS Wire: Amazon. $20 and change, includes 2 day delivery to Canada

    LOL
    Unfortunately that order did not work out and still working on it . My understanding at this point, being back at square one is that they don't ship into Canada but will require a minimum order of $125 to do so. I might consider that if all else fails and since i am not here to make any money off of vapers, IF i get it in, anyone in Toronto that would want some at wholesale cost would be welcome to the rest, after my required amount is set aside.
    Still working on it though but know others in the US that use this wire and it is by far the best and gives the cooler vape I seek.

    For anyone interested, Stainless Steel wire is very difficult to get in Canada. I was fortunate enough to have one of the few very decent guys on the FT forums help me out, OneBadWolf. The problem is that there are too many people vaping on inferior Chinese wire which can be found fairly easily, or, its next to impossible to find the right wire that can be shipped here into Canada. Every which way he tried to help me we ran into that roadblock. Amazon.ca, Amazon.com and so on. The only Malin wire which he first turned me onto, wont ship here but Amazone.ca carries two different sizes only, neither of which can be used for vaping.

    For some, Chinese wire is more than acceptable and I wish I were able but I cant use it. Dont like its taste. Want the safest/best wire possible within reason cost wise (apparently buying it this way is priced well, until they get the idea its for vapers and it skyrockets, at least from what I have been told)
    In any event, for anyone that might be interested, PM me for the link/info

    I was going to post it here but learned the other day not to be so helpful until at least AFTER i order, which wont be until tomorrow morning. Yeah, I lost out on a great deal for the HCigar VT200 by being too helpful. By the time i got there, they were all sold LOL So Pm me if one needs a link, for now. Thanks all!

    MadMeatHead: I am going to PM you simply because I have not had the time to answer this in a organized fashion. Someone else asked by PM out of province and i threw a detailed post together along with the link, so as to give all information that I had. Which you may or may not want but seeing as I just dont have time to go through ths right now and post ONLy the relevant information I have copied/pasted it and will post it in a PM to you in 2 minutes.

    Later if I have time i will try to organize my information into what would make a post far better or you can feel free to do so.....but what I have is just too unorganized to post here momentarily. Anyone else in a hurry can PM me and i can copy/past again until I spellcheck, organize etc.

    My wire will be arriving today by the looks of it but it was a long weekend, hence the delay
