Giant in PA carries them. Look for braces, or dentures

Thanks tjm for tip. Was wondering where I could get tiny wire!

I had an uncle who was always changing his strings on various instruments and those cast off music wires found many uses on my bench, in the right size it can be a spinner shaft or an extension for a hook.

can use them to make weed gaurds too.

Every drug store around here carries them, in the dental floss section.  Maybe because lots of people in GA need floss threaders.  :)

That's what I originally wanted them for. Other uses just kept popping up.
