The Detail
Associates wire is hard. If it is bent at a tight right angle it

butane lighter momentarily to aneal the wire first.
I bend DA wire, often well past 90 degrees, without experiencing
breakage and have never annealed it. I have found that I can even
bend it several times before it does break. DA wire is usually my
first choice because it does bend and HOLD its shape, yet is not
easily bent by accident. My experience with Precision Scale wire is
that it is "softer" and easier to bend by accident. After kicking
around on my bench for a few months, there are no straight pieces of
Precision wire!

with bending, I've never seen it break.

Actually, I have:

I have not bought any in quite some time, there may be more sizes than that.
