I saw in a video that the person was using something he called bridge wire to solder a pcb with. I was wondering what kind if wire is used as a bridge to do the connection between components?

Here are 2 screenshots of what I was thinking of.

It is what is known as BTC an abbreviation for Bare Tinned Copper and is available by the reel. It is single strand for ease of use in getting it through the holes in the breadboard.

You also might want to take a look at this.

I also save and recycle the trimmed off ends of long leaded components it is essentially the same stuff.

There are lead bending machines for resistors and such that can be used to preform the cut wires if you want. \$\endgroup\$ – KalleMP Jun 26 at 10:54
