Yes, but it has to be the correct diameter for the note you are replacing.

Can this wire be used to wind custom compression springs?

Answers

Yes, this is the type of wire used to make springs. And for the record, in spite of their description saying "Ideal for use in pianos" I doubt piano tuners will go to Home Depot for their wire. They just don't offer much selection of this type of wire.

Not well. Try dental floss, or a plant fibre based rope or string (check out HDs ropes and cord section)

Not for hanging pictures
This stuff (OOK product #534279) is way to stiff to straighten. Making a knot is almost impossible. Even with pliers, I felt I was wrestling an alligator. Wish I had purchased soft, more pliable wire.
