Modeler12 Posted March 29, 2014 Share #1 Posted March 29, 2014 (edited) In an earlier thread Chuck and Ulises Victoria mentioned how to make very small eye bolts with very thin wire. I have done some, need more wire and here is the story. I have this spool of old steel (magnetic?) wire, but have no idea where it came from. It is getting smaller and I would like more, but don't know where to get it. It is 0.010 inch in diameter, very easy to twist and has been great to make some tiny eye bolts (as shown below). I would use other than steel but (again) it has to be 0.010 inch or thinner. In Sweden there is a company that makes special tungsten wire, but I am afraid to go that far (or should I?). Here is why: The little adapter to the pin vise was one idea that was mentioned in the earlier thread and credit goes to Ulises Victoria for that great idea. Mucho gratias, mon amigo. All you have to do is make a loop of the wire and start twisting. The second picture is part of the gun carriage I discussed earlier. I hope it shows why I am interested in tiny eye bolts and rings. Does anyone know where I can get more metal wire that is .010 inch or less in diameter??
