  • Small Round HR stock description /suppliers

    Hello Group,
    I am wanting HR round stock steel in a size smaller then 1/4"OD and longer then 3.' The Home Depot carries a 3/16" size. The 2 steel yards that I've checked with do not stock anything smaller then 1/4" OD.
    What im wanting is 10' lengths or more of hot rolled or similar steel in 3/16" or #8,#10 wire sizes. what should I ask for and where do you go to get it since the steel yards say NO!

    Look forward to your suggestions.

    TX Mr fixit for the family

      You are looking for "wire" or "coiled wire" here is one source-

      http://www.centralsteel.com/index.ph...107&Itemid=183

      It can be had straight or in coils,I recommend coils since it's cheaper to ship.

      A simple manual straightener can be built or just stretch it with a Comealong.

        In those smaller sizes a lot of places also call it "nail rod". You can also look for cold finish or 1018 rod in h=the size you require...
