I have made a soap cutter that cuts my 30" logs into 1" bars perfectly. The problem is that after just 3 logs my wires broke. I read online that I need medium-gauge guitar wire or 20 to 22-gauge music wire. I can't find these anywhere!

Does anyone on here have a wire soap cutter? Do you know where to get the wire?

Thanks in advance.

You local music store will have them. Ebay has lots of em. Buy the cheapest pack of 6 and use one of the skinnyest ones.

Use mandolin strings. Mandolins are tuned to a higher octave over a shorter neck. There for their strings are tougher and wound tighter than guitar strings. They are also thinner.

I make TOG Soapmaking Tools and sell a TOG 8 Wire Cutter. I can help. I can cut a set and sell them to you! You need to use only stainless steel to prevent rusting. Mine is only stainless steel and is also stronger! Does yours look anything like the one I sell;

The one I made is much simpler than yours. I copied it from these people. http://hawaiianbathbody.com/WholesaleHa ... ducts.html
Click on the video on the bottom right and you'll see the soap cutter about 2 minutes in.

Thank you Neil, I am as proud of how they look as with how they work.

Nice design Paul, I like the use of the guitar tuning machines for tensioning.
