Default Straightening Music Wire

straighten solid wire fishing leaders. It would seem that
this might work on the music wire, but since I qualify

Will this tool do what I want (guess someone will have to be

is there an alternative method or trick to making the wire

Bob,

Music wire is a little stronger than tie wire, but if its only .047 you
might be able to straighten it simpley by clamping one end in a vise and
pulling on the other end with a pair of Vise Grips. I did exactly that in
this video with .041 stainless tie wire. I've found its easier to do with a
longer piece of wire, than a short piece. In the video clip I do about ten
feet at a time. I pull until I feel it give slightly.
https://youtu.be/QIvEmwWr6o0?t=3m36s The wire stretching starts at 3:36. I
think I have the link set to start there.

Bob

Hmm. 18 years to find a solution -- I think he'd have gotten there by
now...

Yeah, I saw that after I replied myself. Then I realized he was just
looking for an excuse to post about his products.
