The toggle switches, mini jack and plug, snap-on caps, project box, indicator lamp, etc. can easily be obtained at any electronics store. The silver wire should be at least 99.9% fine silver wire (labeled as .999 fine silver {“three nines”} in the precious metal business). # 14 gauge round wire is a good choice. Do not use sterling silver wire. It contains nickel and copper. Nickel can be toxic to the body. Many dealers and refiners of precious metals can be found in The Yellow Pages or Business to Business directories.

One of the biggest dealers in precious metals is Handy & Harmon (1100 Nerge Road, Suite 211, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007 Tel 800-410-5272, Fax 630-893-3721). They will sell you any purity of silver that you want out to “six nines” which is 99.9999% pure silver. They quote the cost of silver based on the troy ounce. Depending on who you get over the phone, you may be able to purchase a small amount (below 10 oz) and not be charged an additional “sample fee” of $100, but it’s not guaranteed. Orders of 500 or 1000 oz silver wire is priced cheaper than smaller lots. The price changes daily, so you’ll have to call to get the current quote.

In southern California, David H. Fell & Company, Inc. (6009 Bandini Blvd., City of Commerce, CA 90040 Tel 213-722-9992, 800-822-1996, Fax 213-722-6567) will sell you 99.9% fine silver with a minimum order of $35.
