how to select stainless steel or oil tempered  
         
 
 
 

Lead Wires:

The three keys to selecting a lead wire are straightness, rigidity and friction. We have a selection of lead wires to choose from including stainless steel, torsion straightened stainless steel, and oil tempered wire.

The oil tempered wire is more rigid then the stainless steel wire, however the stainless steel wire is polished, resistant to rust, and available torsion straightened. The lead wire diameter must be smaller then the diameter of the pintle filament to create smooth pintle connections.
