I think what you are looking for can be found here I don't think tinned copper wire would be the correct material for the job.

You are looking for a varnished solid copper wire, not tinner copper wire. Don;t know about the size, but try Jaycar, RS Electronics, Element 14, or Digikey if you have to.

You can never have enough Volvos!

How much do you want?

I have a roll of 1mm enamelled copper wire here. If you only want a few meters send me a reply envelope and its yours.

Easily end tinned with a hot soldering iron.

Kapiti area.
