Just ordered 3 rolls (2lbs) from AIRGAS in Evansville Indiana. They said they have many in stock but no bigger rolls . They said they do not make any more of the bigger rolls.

Paid by Visa and shipped UPS to me next day....

Good Luck
Bg

There seems to be two posts about this twenty-gauge so I'm sorry. Today I found an outfit with a single 10# roll for me to try. It was quite expensive at $36.20 plus shipping. Should be interesting...

I was able to order a 33lbs spool from AirGas in Marion, IL for $73.00. I am anxious to try it out!

For you guys ordering the larger spools remember to protect it from moisture if you aren't going to use it all in a fairly short time, even moisture from the air will cause problems if left exposed too long. This need not be a problem at all however and usually just slipping a plastic bag over the spool when not in use will prevent the problem, just be sure to seal it by tying the bottom of the bag. If the powder core is allowed to absorb moisture it will not weld very good at all and you will get a lot of splatter but as long as the wire is not allowed to rust (which would even ruin solid wire) this can be fixed by just tossing it in an oven at a couple of hundred degrees for a couple hours and it should be just fine. There is no reason Twenty Gauge can not be kept for years but it does take a little more attention than solid wire.
