I’ve got some more information for you on the upcoming Duelund DCA12GA tinned-copper tone-wire!
In the photo above you can see the raw tinned-copper wire used in the DCA12GA tinned-copper tone-wire.
The new DCA12GA will use 65 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper wires versus the 26 strands of 0.25mm tinned-copper strands used in the DCA16GA.
Frederik told me that the DCA12GA uses the exact same oil-soaked and baked cotton dielectric (above).
The new DCA12GA is so heavy Frederik had to have new equipment constructed to perform the oil-soaking step!
Above is a short movie of DCA12GA being fed into the oil-impregnator.
Frederik says he plans to have the new DCA12GA wire finished by next week, and then it will be shipping to Parts ConneXion.
Parts ConneXion will have exclusive distribution of the DCA12GA for the first 3-4 months after its release.
Chris at Parts ConneXion told me he hopes to have the DCA12GA in stock by Friday, April 21st, so they can start filling orders the last week of April.
You can pre-order now, here, and Parts ConneXion will offer the DCA12GA at a special introductory pricing of $16.99/meter, which after the exclusivity period will go to $19.50/meter. The MSRP Retail List Price of the DCA12GA is $22.95/meter.
I’ll let you know more information as I receive it!
I want to thank all of you who have donated to help me recover Jeff’s Place from the recent hacking event. Thank you so much!
I appreciate all your encouragement, advice, and donations, it really helps!
I’ve placed a PayPal donation button above the comments section, and if you feel like you would like to donate to keep Jeff’s Place secure and up & running, I’d really appreciate it!
I am fortunate that I was able to get Jeff’s Place back up quickly, and it looks like most or all the content has been recovered, thankfully. If you see anything that looks amiss let me know!
I’m working through adding in security software and plugins, backup strategies, and other security techniques that have been recommended to me in order minimize the risk of a similar hack happening again.
As always, thanks for stopping by, and may the tone be with you!
