Can anyone suggest a supplier that would have 3/16" music wire in 72" lengths?

Or at least multiples of 24"...

All I can find are 3 foot pieces and I'll be throwin out a foot each time.

How much are you looking for? I buy stainless springwire cut & straightened for $7-15/lb, with the higher price being for only 10lbs. It's the setup that kills. 3/16 is about 1 lb per 10 ft.

Mcmaster used to stock 6 footers, but only up to 1/8 I believe.

Actually McMaster has it in rolls. Not sure of the exact length. Possibly by weight.

I've gotten in the habit of buying mine from Grainger since they are close and can usually get it by the next day if they don't have it in stock. I get it by the roll their also. Precision wire makes it.

neither mcmaster or grainger carry it in that diameter in a roll. mcmaster sells it in one foot lengths, i do not need one foot lengths.

i've already checked the normal suppliers, i'm not an idiot, hoping for a company i had never heard of...i'll check with the wire straightening company.
