Im redoing some small R&M fans and a Dayton 22 has the same cage wires (.094). Anyone found a supplier for this small wire size?  Found one supplier I use for my brass stock but only in 6’ lengths and $25 shipping for $5 worth of material - Online metals. Anyone found a different supplier?
Thanks for any input:up:

I buy the majority of my stock from McMaster-Carr.
Yeah, the shipping hurts, so buy enough to make it worthwhile.
Cheers,
Bill

You might check your local farm supply store  for electric fence wire.
They should have it in several gauges .and you can buy in small or large  spools cash and carry.

Are you sure it isn't .0938"? If so, that's 3/32", and unfluxed brazing rod can be gotten at a welding supply store for CHEAP!

Have a close look at that brazing rod before buying. It is likely bronze, not brass. That might not make any difference unless you have them side by side with brass.
Cheers,

If you don't need brass  the  hangers that work uniforms  come  on are right at .09

Ace Hardware has several sizes of brass rods in 12 inch lengths   3/32 is $1.99. Not sure if your local store has them, mine does but it is a larger store.

Thanks for info guys. It is brass rod I was trying to obtain. Checked Ace/Lowe’s/ etc. 8/32 is the only stocked size. 3/32 looks to be correct size. I’ll update when I get some in.

I've bought a lot of brazing rod, and it is indeed brass. Bronze may be available, but I have not seen it.

The first time, I took a cage with me and a rag with some Mothers in it. I polished up a spoke on the cage, then polished the brazing rod. Perfect match! Have been happy with it ever since!

If your wires are steel, the brass would work fine, be easy to bend and easily painted.

I’d like to know how and with what tools you plan to bend that wire. Could come in handy someday!
