Bill mentioned wire wrap 40awg wire in a recent video but I can't find it anywhere. I see magnet wire with a varnish coat but that won't work for this application. I know it existed, because searching 'wire wrap' brings up a picture of it although probably not silicone but some other plastic covering.

The use case is wiring a perf board feeding the wires up from the bottom of the board to be attached to a component on the top of the board.

If you can't find the required size of wire, maybe just drill some holes in the perf board that will accommodate whatever size wire you already have.

I don't know about the "silicone wire", but I use 30 gauge wire-wrap wire (although I might have mistakenly referred to it as 40 gauge, sorry).  I am using silicone wire in my rover, but none of it is that small.

The wire-wrap wire is available on eBay in spools, one spool will last you about three lifetimes. I have 5 colors, so I have enough to last until at least the 23rd century!

You'll need a wire stripper for them, I got a set on Amazon which has done nicely.
