I'm sure some of you experts know the approximate AWG size of the model t mag. Please post.

It is flat copper strips, not wire at all. It is 1/4" by .015" I think (from memory, suspect....).

Assuming Royce is right, that cross sectional area would equate to 18 AWG. Actually #19 is closer but not available.

Royce is correct, but in April of '21 the width of the flat copper wire changed to 3/16" wide. The thickness remained the same at 0.015".
