    Back in the days, no resistance wire was called wire.
    10 Metres No Resistance Silver Wire .9999 - 32 AWG - 0.20 mm / 0.008" diameter | eBay
    Not sure if local suppliers stock it, someone is bound to know.

    Jeweler suppliers usually will have silver wire in varying thicknesses but it may not be thin enough for what we use it for.

    I use kynar wire a great deal in electronics and whenever I need a good little wire.
    Kinsten. Kynar 30AWG Wire.

    It was originally developed for wire wrapping and I am pretty sure it used to be silver plated copper, now I am not sure if it is still silver or if it is now tin plated which is not ideal.

    The insulation copes with high temps but is a prick to remove if you want to get off more than 2 inches.

    I have used it in small experiments with attys, I reckon it may even be used in attys now, the stuff in 306's looks a lot like it.

    Yeah - make an X with about 5mm on the top, and the long bits hanging down - twist the short bit of the X together - now you have an upside down Y, take the NR branch of the Y and fold it back in the direction of the twisty bit, then wrap it (the NR wire) back around the twisty bit you made before. (Hard to explain in words, google vids on building GG atties is probably better)

    Silver wire can just be wrapped once and then melted on with a lighter till it blobs and sticks.
