Space-saving source of wires for DIY electronics projects

A neat technique to get low gauge stranded wires affordably is to pick up some of these ribbon cables at your local electronics shop:

Simply separate the wires with your fingernails and strip them with with a 28 gauge wire stripper. The exact gauge is usually printed right on the ribbon cable (in this case, 28 AWG).

No fancy colours but these are a great help at fitting your electronics into tight enclosures.
