    Anyone know where to find spring steel cheap. I need about 1.6mm spring steel for some clips I wanna make and also for breakout sinker wires cos the cheap ones bend and snap.

    Dont buy cheap ones .I bought 60 breakaway sinkers in three different sizes on trade me.They were the heavey gauge wire
    ones that I have yet to break one.These were 5-6 bucks in sport shops and are the nice long oval shaped ones .The cost was around
    $2.60 each from memory.Not worth making yourself at that price.The spring steel could be sourced from a spring maker or someone like steel and tube.

    That was one reason but I wanted to make up some clip things to attatch to sinker for pully rigs etc Was also going to make some of these slides up. Could also use s/steel tig wire just want to find the cheapest option.
