I need to find a place to get the thin enough wires for the origa installation. I'm gonna give it a shot. Thanks in advance!

two possibilities:
you use IDE wires, and cut off all but 3 strands inside. then twist the remaining three tightly together and tin them. that makes them pretty much exactly as wide as a chip pin.
best way is to hold it to the pin and heat it up above the pin, the solder will melt further down the wire too and attach to the pin.

or you get 0.1 mm thick copper wire, the kind that is covered in some sort of clear paint, and solderable.. I'm not sure what the english word for it is. that's easier to solder, given your soldering iron tip is small enough, but also easier to break since it's so thin.

both types can be gotten at good electronics shops.

Cool thanks. I can't seem to find those thin wires needed for the origa install anywhere in electronics stores. I thought of using phone wire and slicing it up and using the wire inside. I'd rather just buy thin wire though. It would definately be 10 times more convenient if there was a website I can order that thin wire. Any more suggestions?
