pinion wire

Hello, new guy here.

cutting gears is not my problem but the pinions just drive me nuts. Is there a good source for small orders of pinion wire? Thanks

Found my own source on the net, (Stock Drive Products).
 Pricey so I think I'll just keep making my own and pick out the good ones.

I worked on clocks for a number of years and even ran a clock repair business and I always used Piano or spring wire which I picked up at a hobby store and just cut them to length with a pair of side cutters or a Dremel cut of wheel. Cliff.
