Music wire is a good idea, and phosphor-bronze.  DPH seems to be out of DA wire entirely, sadly.

Des Plaines Hobbies carries an incredible array of wire and tubing products. I'll be shocked
if they don't have any. Another item that I have is small STEEL wire (music wire) - great for
applications where you want wire that does not bend (e.g. tank car handrails, brake rods, etc).
My local "Hobby Town" store sells it.

Speaking of small parts for brake systems, does anyone know of a source for 0.015” brass wire?  I can’t find it from any of the usual sources.
