    Black wire for eye bolts/rings

    Brass is easy to twist as cooper. But can be easier blackened. If you're not sure in brass softness you may anneal brass before using. Some times I blacken straight wire, some times result eye bolts/rings. I think you may blacken cooper wire before making rings using sulfuric ointment from drug store. Here I've used it to blacken cooper stripes. http://hms-vanguard.blogspot.com.by/2009/06/blog-post_02.html

  10. It's very simple to measure rope diameter: I make 10-20 turns around pen and measure whole length then divide by number of turns. :--) How to know which threads to use to get desired diameter - download user guide in right "download" section. You may find answer at the end of the manual. http://shipworkshop.com/products/tools/ropewalk-planetary-3.0

Wheels are for making stay mouse http://shipworkshop.com/products/options/mouse Sorry, I still haven't made video but for the fist time pics should be enough.
