Love magnet and motor wire for flies,  electric motor repair shop by me sells enameled wire and bare.   Craigslist often has it too.  Have to keep your eyes open.

As a former rod builder, microwaves at the curb were a source of slow turning motors for curing epoxy. Cords for tossed appliances is a great source...and free.

BTW, people toss MWOs when all that is needed is a fuse.

Doesn't the wire from cords discolor over time?

Never noticed it and, for me, it's not an issue. If it's for weight, one will never see it unless Moby Trout or Basszilla chews the dubbing off the hook.

Maybe, but mine have never lasted long enough for it to be an issue.
