Help! Help! Threaded wire

Post by BOB LA » Sun, 14 Dec 1997 04:00:00



I am trying to replace some damper wires in an old square piano.  The
wires are 0.041 inch diameter (#18 music wire) and are threaded into a
wooden block.  Does anyone have an idea of how I get threaded wire of
this diameter or what might be used as a replacement.  Thank you.

Bob,

I build special purpose machines for the piano industry among others.
Let me know the size as regards length, diameter and thread and I will
see if I can get some stock wires for you and mail them over.

Don't know if you have the availability to scan things into the
computer, if you can send me the file of the whole part. I might be
able to get these for you.

Regards,

Sounds easy for me - you don't mention the lenght though.

How about going to a guitar shop - buy strings there - by size.
Many have longer ones for other instruments (harp...).

Good luck,
Martin

1) Cut a thread with a die
 OR
2) Glue in unthreaded wire with epoxy
