    Ball gate wires

    I have a few projects on the go and one of them is missing some ball gate wires.
    I have the gate brackets.
    Does anyone know where I might buy the same wire to make some myself ?

    Yeah, I've used both music wire from hobby shops and SS tig filler rod from a welding place. Both work fine.
