A: Hello, This item may be to malleable for a spike. Thank you for your inquiry.
A: I’m sure you can, but it would be time consuming making your own bird spikes. You can buy bird spikes at a reasonable price and save you the time and trouble from making your own.
A: It is Galvanized Steel Wire 25 lb weight strength. Solid Core Wire, very Flexible, did not break while hanging 75' of Outdoor String LED Lights, easy to twist ends of wire to allow termination of wire ends attached to Turnbuckles folded at 180 degrees with no problem. Take the time to uncoil the wire properly.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. This item is not annealed. However OOK item number 50155 (Hillman item number 534672) is annealed.
A: I seriously doubt it is annealed or imho would break but check with the mfg.
A: 18 gauge...
A: Thank you for your interest in Hillman products! This product is 18 gauge.
A: This product is 18-Gauge.
A: for a lamp shade I would probably go with something heavier.
A: Hi and thank you for your inquiry. We do not have information of what would be the exact use, however the hobby wire is typically used for arts and crafts such as this.
A: I would go another gauge thicker like 14 gauge. This is very light and flexible but it breaks very easily. It depends on the shade shape you are trying to make. It is fairly inexpensive and worth trying. It is really meant to hang pictures.
