RE: [DMCForum] Re: Fixed at last....



Rich,
If you put a digital ohm meter probe on each end of the wire and touching
the metal firmly and read each wire resistance and write it down and even
check the length of the wire. This will get the standard of the wires. Then
when you find one that's off the wall, then that's a bad wire. 61K is a bad
wire. If all the others are around 1500 or lower or higher.
The cheaper wires at AutoZone when I was doing my study was around 5000 ohms
per wire.Ok, A little high for me but they were all in range.

  Well...I did attempt to measure the resistance of the old and new
  wires.

  This is where I'm confused and I'm trying to read up on it:

  The old wire read 1,361 ohms. The new wire read much much higher (I
  forget right now)...something like 61k ohms...it was nearly off the
  scale.

  I thought -less- resistance was better? John Hervey sells 8mm, 350
  ohm/ft hand made wires. S'plain this one to me?
