Not that many. The only reason that you can even make E4-1 at that size is because of springback. Try 14g 5/16. If you want an expanding circle coif, you can use this size, but the queen ring has to be bigger, about 3/8 or 7/16.

well know i know, after i made about 10 or so feet of coiled wire, so if you had .08 copper and wraped it around 1/4 rod, you wouldent be able to make euro 4-1 because copper dosnt have much spring back

You could try Trinity.
But expect it to curl unless you figure some
way to alternate the bias every few rows.

That size might work for Jens Pind Linkage, and probably will work for Hoodoo Hex...

I really should pay more attention to what AR I use.. I just use a size ring and size wire that I think would go well together, without calculating the AR.. oh well Razz

Are you sure it isn't AWG wire? Because that would have an AR of 3.7...

AWG is only used for non-ferrous metals, and not even all of those. If you are using stainless or galvy, or even standard aluminum, you probably have SWG.
