I have a fun project to cut an acrylic cup lengthwise so I can mount it on a plaque sticking out of the plaque.
I plan to build a fixture to hold the cup while I slide a nichrome wire length wise along the cup. For this project I’ll need a 12 inch long piece of nichrome wire that I can heat enough to melt the acrylic (24-30ga?). I can handle the power supply side with my background in elecronics. I just need to find a good source for the wire. I could buy a whole spool for ~$10+shipping but I’m just going to throw away the other 95 feet when I’m done . Would anyone have a spool of appropriate gauge and willing to sell me a few feet?
