Miniature turnbuckles and wire

Post  Cox International on Tue Feb 05, 2013 11:13 am

Where does one find miniature turnbuckles (aprx. 1") and the matching wire? This would be for wing wires.

Do you want solid wire or braided cable?

Search McMaster-Carr for stainless steel wire and for stainless steel cable. They have matte wire (bendable) down to .005" and bright (spring steel) down to .009". I use their bright wire in my foam cutting bow.

They have bare stainless cable down to .012" in 7 strand.

That should do Andrew, thanks. Braided wire for scaled looks and I might be able to find that at a local craft store.

Thanks again.

Thanks again.

A lot of you guys up north are big into fishing. Go to a local sporting goods store has a well stocked fishing department --- look for stainless steel leader wire (even though it states wire, many will be 1x7 cable). They should carry several weights (diameters) --- just make sure to get un-coated. Some of the leaders will have a nylon or teflon cladding.

I have been flying on that stuff for decades! My dad made his own lines when he flew combat from down rigger wire.
