I saw the thread on switch throws.   I did not want to Hi Jack his thread.

Do any of you have a  source for  PIANO WIRE  to make springs?

Any places on line?

John,

Also, if anyone still flies control line, model airplane lead in wire works well. I used to control switches up to about 3 feet away (maximum length I could get the lead in wire) in the smaller scales by forming a loop for spring action by the switch and then running the lead in wire through a plastic tube beneath other tracks often through a bend as well and onto a switchstand. If it's tough enough to do that it should work fine for a largescale switch.
