Gold wire electrode gauge size?

(1/1)

bcboy:
I have a gold smith that is going to draw some gold wire, what gauge should I ask her to make that is the optimal size for electrolysis ?
Thanks everyone!!!

wgpeters:
Bigger is better, and wastes less gold.  In use, its going to get thinner until it breaks off.  So starting with a heavier gauge gives more useable gold.

bcboy:
Thank-You Bill. I have some 14 gauge wire that I am going to use.
