Default Brace wire

Question Guys. In the Hatz wings the internal brace wire is specified
as 3/16" AN703. Does anybody know a source for this? Spruce and Wicks
do not specify.
Thanks,
Tom Mathes

Try weebeastie.com as a Hatz resource. Also there are several populous
Hatz groups on the web.

Love those Hatz biplanes. Beautiful. Good luck.

In my Sproose catalog-2002 they are listed as round tie rods--right under
the
brstreamline tie rods---nearly as expensive too---then when you add the
end fittings
brthey really cost a bundle----get a little lathe, make your own out
of 1/4" 316
brS.S.  rod---grind a 3 or 4" section down to 3/16" to keep from
having a stress
brriser area in the threads---or have the 1/4" rod roll-threaded to 5/16
---make your own rod ends out of  7/16" or 1/2" hex rod---its either
money or time either way
bryou go.

Well that at least one less boring job that you don't have to do,
clench rivets. I guess that's worse than boring holes for thousands
of screws.
