Hello,

Was was wondering what size (ie gauge) jumper wire is recommended to use with the BOE?

Thanks,

Randy

Hi Randy,

We supply 22 gauge wire in our Board of Education kits.

Awesome, thanks. I didn't get my BOE in a kit, so I have to get all the extras separately.

I got my hands on a 12" piece of 25 pair CAT 3 solid strand.... *drools* man that stuff is nice, and so much of it, and every wire has a diffrent color\stripe combo.
You can never have too many jumpers.

It kills me becuase I had LITERALLY 50 pieces of a simular wire that were like 20 feet long. I bet they didnt even get recycled, just thrown away. Bought an old telecommunications cabnet at city auction.

Great info, I've found an ebay auction for a 6 pair 10-baseT cable for $2.38 per 5' and free shipping. That come out to just under 4 cents per foot.

But, it is 24 awg. Well that be ok compared to 22 awg?
