    MWS heavy formvar

    hi everybod,
    recently I've purchased two spools of MWS heavy formvar. one is marked 42T, that's awg 42 triple insulation.
    the other is marked 42Q and I have no idea what this means. anyone any idea?
    thanks.
    chr.

    should have started thinking before writing.
    it's quadruple insulation. didn't even imagine that this would exist.

    There are four different builds: single, heavy, triple, and quadruple
    looks like you might have a spool each of Triple and a spool of Quadruple insulated wire.

    yes, that's correct. have re-wound a number of 60' and 70' stratpickups to the full satisfaction of the customer with the triple wire so far.
    could get up to 7500 turns on a grey bottom bobbin. didn't try the quadruple wire so far, maybe it's difficult to get enough copper on a bobbin?
    anyone ever used that stuff?
