Rigging Wire Material

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a source for thin Stainless Steel wire to use for rigging biplanes.  Years ago, I bought a scale wire kit which had .004 and .008 inch diameter wire.  It was produced by an IPMS member, Clay Boyd.  Is this still produced?  Where can I find it?  Does Clay still produce it?  All comments are welcome.

Don't know about Clay Boyd and his wire, but try Amazon. Search in the "Industrial and scientific" category. For example, here's a link to a 10-pack of 36-inch lengths of 0.008" bright finish spring temper stainless steel wire:
