I can find brass but brass rod of 1/8 to 1/4" is tough since my supplier moved
out of town.
Soft copper wire (like household wire) is driving me nuts.
I just can't buy bare wire in 1/8" or heavier.
I'm tired of stripping the stuff.
Anyone have any ideas where to look for BARE copper wire.
Winding wire is out because it is coated.
I use a far bit of these in my box making.
Lead as well. I can't find it in sheets of any size at all.
I still have a bit of an old 18" wide roll left but have no idea of where to
Go to your local hobby shop. They usually carry brass sheet, strip and
rod and the rod goes up to at least 1/8th.
Alternatively, check out a knifemakers supply house.
Projects expand to fill the clamps available -- plus 20 percent
You might try a scrapper. My Grandfather used to repair electric motors and
I remember him burning the coating of the windings before sending them off
to the scrapper. It seems to me he also had to clean them up before they got
turned in. So someone has already done the stripping work for you.
