Magnet wire is really small wire that has an enamel coating as insulation.
It is normally used for coil windings in electromagnets and transformers.

Cool, thanks for explaining that for me.

Looks like I'll need to get some of that too then  ;D

I've been trawling for LED strips and found these links on Amazon, are they any good?

I don't really know what I'm looking at with electronics yet, they do look the same as the ones Boyd uses, but it just says high brightness SMD and I'm sure Boyd said his were "Double Density".

Checked out your links. Those are the right led strips. They are what I use.
They are single density but work fine. Double density packs more leds in less
length. Single = 3 to a 3 inch section, Double = 6 to a 3 inch section.
Hope that helps.

5M???? That's epic!!!!! They look double density too, looks like they don't post to Ireland though, boo, ha ha have enough strips to keep me going for now though, but great find! Does the waterproof tape hinder in any way?

You can non waterproof tape in 5M, I will have a look if a site ships to Ireland. I do prefer the non waterproof as it doesn't have the plastic top over the SMD's

hi guys,

As you are probably aware, no-one seems to stock Testers decal sealer here in UK, so we've either got to pay more in shipping than we've paid for the item from USA or take a gamble on the minefield of "Acrylic Lacquer" products here in UK and hope that they are not in fact Cellulose based items that will dissolve your decals (Halfords clear lacquer is a good example of this).

After trawling through Google most of the morning I finally found a proper acrylic decal sealer here in UK. It's called KEEN TOP CRYSTAL CLEAR SPRAY and it specifically states in the product description that it is "PERFECT" for sealing inkjet water slide decals.

Here's the link just in case anyone else wants some for their Acreation decals....

Hope this helps,

Tony
