Default Looking for Nitinol wire supplier

Hi there, I am new to the site. I have an ongoing project and am looking for a supplier for nickel titanium superelastic annealed wire or Nitinol #1, size 1mm or less.
I have been searching the web for suppliers and have found that there is a big price gap between different distributors, ranging from 50 cents a foot to $50 for 6 feet.

I am hoping someone here may be able to steer me in the right direction. Thanks for your time.

Without getting too far into it, I am experimenting with materials to use in a robotics project.

We have another member here who is into robotics and industrial engineering. Can't remember his site name right now. By the way, welcome to our site. I know nothing about this type of wire, but there may be others here who do.

I suspect that there's "row run" wire and then grades that are suitable for medical implant use, and everything in between.

Wonder what these folks get for a spool of wire:
