Trying to find a source for some wire.

  1. After spending the last 2-3 hours trying to find a price and a source
    for Stainless Steel .005" diameter wire I am asking here (no luck on my
    google searches). The perfect wire would be stranded where each strand
    (8 or more) would be .005" in diameter but I would settle on single
    uncoated Stainless Steel in .005" diameter.

    Thank you.
     
  2. How about piano wire? Call a music store and see if they can help.

    For stranded wire that small, you might find it available in SS fishing
    leaders.. The fishing supply shops have spools of different size stranded
    wire.. Take your micrometer along because there not going to know what size
    the individual strands.

  5. Thank you VERY much as this is the ticket. I hope they don't require a
    minimum order as a 1-LB spool is $46.67 Each and has 14,892 ft. Thats
    enough wire to last me several life times.

    Thanks again.

    They don't have a minimum order as far as I know, but of course
    you pay shipping and stuff. I buy stuff from them routinely -
    there's one about 3 blocks from the office. They have _everything!_
    Try 9882K11 = $30.40 for 1/4 lb.

    Cheers!
