I'm working on a project (shh, don't tell) and I need a little coil of nichrome wire. Some research tells me that a big roll can be bought for like $15 USD but I honestly don't need that much. It's the heating element used in those car cigarette lighters (the kind you plug into the socket...you know what I mean) and (i think) toasters. If anyone has a roll laying around or an old toaster or lighter, would you mind mailing me a little bit, like three or four inches? I can give you a dollar or so or stamps or something, and I have some salvaged parts I could trade you.
