What size safety wire do you guys use?

I use a lot of .041" on the Model T. Use other sizes on aircraft.

Thanks Royce, that's what I needed.

.032 will work fine as well.

Plus it's a little easier to twist.

In case anyone needs a source for the wire:

For what it is worth, this is a shameless plug for the company where I work.

Royce: That's a good price (7.95). Looks like $16.56 on Amazon.

That maybe true Sean about the price, but don't forget to add in shipping. In my case it came out to $15.25 total.

Good point, Chad. The Amazon price was for Prime with free shipping so pretty darn close in the end. I stand corrected about the "good price" :-(

If you live near any major airport there is likely a local store that you can walk in and buy a pound for $10 plus tax.

If you have a Harbor Freight store nearby they usually have it in stock as 'stainless steel lock wire'
