Brush wire

 Probably not the kind of thing that most people have in the house. I've had a pair of these in my hands for more than 40 years. When they lose their spring and get too bent, I bin them. Surprisingly I've never taken a pair apart. Today is that day. Simple crimped construction, so a few minutes with a pair of side cutters produced all the signal control or handrail wire I'll ever need.


  1. What are the wires made of, Chris? I guess springy steel...

  2. Modelling is the ultimate in recycling. I drive Sue mad by saying everything's got a modelling application.
