    Hello,I have a project of mine which is going to require few jumper links and since I'm running low on copper wire I was thinking of using carbon steel wire to be used as a jumper,dimension would be 3cm L x 1mm A.
    So what do you think guys?

    Last time I used steel wire in electrical project was when I was building a project with NE555,it didn't end up good,PSU went into protection mode:eek:.Not sure because it was from steel wire overloading the PSU or short circuit.

    You should get some "0-ohm resistors" which are designed to be jumpers.

    All I can say is, steel is hard to solder. :oops:
