 Weight of Wire Needed? Posted on Wed Jan 04, 2006 8:41 am Link to Post: Well, i have a fellow over on TCB who is asking me to do some work for him for a small fee, i agreed and i'm just needing someone who's math doesn't suck right now to help me out. (i think i broke my brain after fall finals...) anyways, he's asking for two sections of semi-circular euro 4-1 in 5/16" ID 14g SS. the componentents are made of 3 triangles joined in the 45* method, with a total midline length (from apex to the middle of the base) of 15" for each triangle. i've decided on TRL's SS wire (not the spring temper stuff the 1/4 hard stuff) off the top of my head i calculated out 10lbs, but since i haven't worked in 5/16" 14g recently, i want a second opinion. thanks for your time everyone!thousands of rings, sure chance of slip 'n jab, what are we watin' for?

I'll try and do the math on it and post again if I can get it."I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to... I guess." "And remember, if it aint broke, you aint tryin'" - Red Green

So if you're using 3 triagnles in each peice they'll weigh about 9 lbs each or 18 lbs each if you use 6 in each."I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to... I guess."
