Hello soundguy,

I did not know that strings came that small.
Copper strands has served me well for many moons. I like it because is soft, and does not enlarge the hole. The last jet I needed to clean I guessed at about .014. Just blowing to clean these small orifices is not usually enough,

Guido.

a guitar high E string will be as small or smaller than a single strand of that copper.. and will be strong enough to need high quality wire cutters to cut it. as 36 said. soft ductile copper strands can break off in a small orifice or port. that guidar sting is tough.. and long. if a end gets worn.. cut off a bit. single string can last a lifetime. a set of 6 ( E A D G B E ) and you have many choices of size and style )

You stand a good chance of breaking the copper off in the jet.

Hello spacecadet9,

Did not know that, thanks. Are the smaller ones single strand? Multi strands work like a charm!

Guido.

the smallest are usually single string. however you can get wound types in many sizes. the would types can have round or flat profiles too, depending on base wire and wid wire.

a small wound wire makes a GOOD cleaner

I have used strands too. One of the best things I have found is a "hand drill tip cleaner", they run about $10.00 at any welding store.

Hello 504-1

Are you talking about these?
The smallest one was to big for the jet I was trying to clean...........
3 wires .004 each twisted together did the trick!
