Electric cord wire by the foot 18/2 AWG SPT-2 *
(UL) 18/2 AWG 2 conductor copper wire with the SPT-2 jacket- BLACK
Rated for up top 300 volts 10 amps. Ideal weight wire and jacket for most sewing machine applications.
Almost all hardware stores and home centers only carry 18/2 cord with the thinner SPT-1 jacket. They have the heavier 16/2 cord with the SPT-2 insulation, but the 16 gauge wire is often too thick to fit in the junction boxes and behind the terminals of many machines. Trying to force too thick of a wire into those areas can result in damaged parts.
This 18/2 SPT-2 AWG wire is just right. The little extra thickness to the jacket offers more abrassion resistance and is ideal for sewing machine applications. Since it is 18 gauge (The ideal gauge for home sewing machine applications - thinner wire than 16 gauge) is still fits nicely behind terminal bodies, etc...
