CS... I make the loops teh old fashioned way by hand. Round nose pliers for smaller loops and a bolt in a vise for larger loops. I looked into get a fancy dancy bender and it wasn't worth teh cost for me.

Sammy, I read somewhere that you could take a couple of nails in a 2x4 and make a jig for those nose loops. Dremel the heads off, bigger nails for bigger loops, different patterns, crazy?

You can scew it to a workbench or clamp it in a vice which is what I do. The pins are pieces if 1/4" steel rod 1" long. The holes are two in a straight line and the end one at a 45 degree angle up. The holes have 1/16" between the edges so if you do the math, 5/16" between centers when you mark out the holes.Make the holes 1/2" deep. Next to the holes make a saw kerf that your wire will fit into so you can make the initial 90 degree bend nice and neat. Lay the wire the full width of the wood so you'll have an inch of wire before the bend. Now just follow the pictures, in the last picture I tighten up the loop by squeezing the ends together with a pair of pliers. ...mrpogie
Does anyone know where I can get one of these wire benders?

Amazon. 10 bucks shipped to you. I'm trying to learn this jig as I sit here sipping coffee, lol.

Here is the one I bought. Duluth has the blue ones for a bit more.

It does for Mr.Pogie. I haven't tried his way yet. My way caused on side of the loop to deform though. Need to try his plier method out.

I don't fully understand the question. If you are asking where to buy wire to thru-wire plugs then I have an answer. I have always (10+ years) used stainless welding rod in 306 hardness. It is a little hard to bend so I bought a box of it (about 25#) and had it heat treated) Now it bends easy without loosing any of it tensile strength or stainless properties.

The other guys may have other ways of doing it.

I'm done

Any welding supply house. Buy it by the pound. 306 hardness. Usually comes in straight lengths 36" long. You can cut as needed.
