Re: Westinghouse "K"-Series Brake System

I use 0.010 in. wire. The handles have a tendency to get snagged and bent as Bill says. I also use 0.012 in. or 0.0125 in. wire for grab irons when I have to bend replacements because that’s the size included in kits. Yes, 0.010 or 0.008 in. look better, but I’m not into bending more grab irons than absolutely necessary, as the majority of my cars have grab ladders.

I usually use .010 for thus feature.  Although it is unlikely to be touched in handling this saves me from using .008 or .006 and having you straighten it later.
