Responding to some general questions about the post yesterday which
follows these numbered items :
1. The color of jacket in any given reel will most likely be the same
throughout, but there is no guarantee of choice. The colors are solid -
not striped - at least in present stock.
2. The wire is un-marked, since its primary use does not require it. It
is UL eligible, but not so marked. 300 VAC dielectric rating - which is
the same as rotor cable wire, for example.  
3. Its use for household wiring depends on local codes, if any. It is top
quality material  meant for commercial use, not "seconds" or rejects in
any way. It is simply too short for 10-25 K ft  continuous production
4. In addition to the types listed, there is also some 12 AWG
w/polyethylene jacket available on the same pricing basis. Its price is 8
cents per foot for 5K ft, or 1 cent/ft more for lesser amounts down to 1K
5. One inquiry last night asked for info mentioning item (3) above - 1 K
of each...................your post was lost - please resend.
Thanks to all for the interest.
