I finally talked my local dealer to order me some Crown Alloys 4043 .030 alum wire. He said we only sell .035 and i wanted to try the smaller wire. What a difference its like night and day. I have done 4 small projects with the .030 and i love it. I can dial the heat down one notch and make the nicest looking beads plus i can do build ups easier without blowing all the bead away. So if you get a chance try some. Need some i can ship for what ever it costs don't spend 15 bucks a spool off ebay plus shipping...Bob

Home Depot, 10$ for 030, had 10 rolls in stock. Bought some from a LWS, was a bit cheaper I think but its been a while. I liked the smaller wire with the HH210 too.
