Blimey tinker are you using it instead of track. I have a reel less than a tenth of that which is over 50 years old.

Not 5kg worth tinker that’s over 11lb. You’ll need to reinforce your layout. You sure it’s not 0.5 kg. We used to solder 2,000 pair cables to a distribution frame with a tiny real of solder.
