Are you using it for grain or filling it? If it will only have to support its own wait plus snow, etc., you could use cable. Get something with a good strength to it. I would imagine swapping over with the right stuff wouldn't be cheap. If the rods were in good shape I would just keep them. They have found their level and curve by now anyway.

If you are filling it I would sure use the rods. Those folks used really good lumber and materials ages ago. They knew what they were doing and didn't cut corners. That's why she's still standing.

Nope, I'm mainly using it just to store small-square bales of hay in. I'm going to use the rods on the outside to band it back together with, but it was put up using a top and bottom pieces of rod on the inside to erect it with. There were several pieces of steel rod, and steel bands wired up to hold the boards in place until they could put the steel rods around the outside. I was just wondering if I could do the preliminary work with steel cable around the inside to hold it up until I could get the bands back on.
