Re: Square Wire for Vertical Brake Staffs

Craft beading wire is available as square brass wire, 0.020 thick, 4-meter long coils, at $7

You'll have to use the classic pull method to get straight rod out of the coiled wire. But brass pull-straightens very easily. It's a very old method that has long been used in the hobby.
