Hi Everyone, I posted a couple years back about a train shop near me that sells long pieces of wire to go in our cast on combs. I recently went back there and they no longer carry them. However, I did find them at Hobby Land and they have stores across the states. I bought 4- 36 inch wires for 1.60. It says KS Precision Metals, made in the usa Stock #501. Then in small print it says .032 music wire .81mm. So I googled KS metals  and these metal rods  are sold at a list of stores . You can view that list and see if there are any near you. I would call first.  I then found this wire on Amazon and it looks like 20 pieces for 20 dollars. Wrong, I read the questions asked and it is only 4 -36 inch wires for 20.00. Very misleading.

I was thrilled to find these since they were so reasonable and in straight pieces instead of a circle of wire .  By the way, two wires fit in three cast on combs. I just took a plier and bent the one end down at an angle to make a stop .  You may already know this but some might not. 🙂

    Wish we could get these wires in Johannesburg ..I could only get the circular wire from a music shop.

    • Did you try a hobby shop or train shop? The man at the train shop said he supposed he could order them. Perhaps they can order for you? 🙂
