    Hey there

    I have a wire that I would like to increase the resistance of rather than having to go out and get a new wire. Not sure how possible this is but thought I would ask anyways… thanks

    Hi Frank,

    Assuming we are talking about a wire that you already have on hand, there is not much that you can do to change its resistance properties substantially. I think your best course of option if possible is to wind the wire into a coil if you are working with AC anyways. If you are working with DC I do not think that will make any difference.

    Hope this helped you out.
