I have 8 spools of aluminum still shrink wraped.
0.047 or 18 gauge aluminum 5356 AKA bright aluminum.
Great for rings, wire work, and viking knit as well as welding applicaitons if you have the right equipment.
$ 7.00 plus shipping

If you want to trade I'm looking for lathe parts, MT1 chucks and stuch for the tail stock.
Brass wire, 3/8" ID slitting saw blades for a ring cutter setup.

losthelm, how much wire is on each spool? Feet? Pounds? And is that $7 per spool, or $7 for all of them?

This wire should be around 485 feet per pound.


Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

Thanks, for some reason my responce Thursday was lost in space.

It should be right around 485 feet though I have now way to measure it besides looking at the weight per volume tables on the data sheet or matweb/azom.
Some shops give you just a little more to get the wire to line up with the holes in the spool.
