I've been considering trying my hand at soldering up some handrails out of brass wire. I saw a quick tutorial around here somewhere, if I remember correctly, it was by randgust, and I thought it might be worth it on my latest projects.
What wire should I use? He used .010 for the rail and .015 for the stanchions. I was thinking about maybe .008 and something a bit smaller than .015, but I'm not so sure anymore.
