I have some 0.00125" aluminum wire for sale. It comes on a mini-spool with about 525 feet a spool.
This is the same stuff they use to weld integrated circuits and microchips.

I'd like $5 a roll, plus $2 shipping. I have 47 spools.

Are you insane enough to make something out of it? Razz

O_O

that's thinner than 40 gauge O_O

what's the practical use for that? cause i dont see that being used for electrical purposes, cause aluminum is too weak for most of those to begin with, let alone it being that thin O_O

... and yet i want to buy some so much... i'll get back to you

i'm betting so.

i just trying to think what practical use this'd be if i dont even have any wire small enough to use as a mandrel, dont have an electron microscope to see it with, and dont have 2 tweezers nor something to cut it with Razz... well, i could probably cut it with my skeletool cx's knife... Razz

A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

I guess it would be easier to erode a maille pattern out of a wafer, than actually mailleing it using wire that thin.

BTW: If you made AR 4.0 rings from one spool, you would get (neglecting the kerf) more than 320,000 rings...

Fun fact, this wire is as thin as the thinnest condom in the world.
