Hi - could any kiwi out there share their source for brass or copper wire? 

I have used all mine up that I got overseas have tried all over the place including Mico and Global Metals (1 tonne minimun order - just a little bit too much) and no joy.  I used to get it at Mico years ago. 

Hobby shops like Spotlight are no good either as it is just craft wire they sell.  I might end up ordering from the US but would love the avoid paying huge shipping costs for wire!

Any help appreciated ... you can message me if you prefer
Thanks!

Hi, I used to get sterling silver wire from a foundry in Auckland called Regal Castings. Don't have the phone number handy, but they're in the yellow pages. Would somewhere like that do copper and brass too? Might be worth a try. I think they had a minimum order of only $15. Good luck!

Thanks guys for your help!  I managed to get hold of some 2.4mm but will need to draw it down ... a lot!

Regal IS great ... a treasure trove for new tools and other playthings
