Square Wire

Square Wire begins as a cast round rod or billet, it then undergoes a specific rolling and annealing process to produce quality fabricated wire in a wide range of alloys and thicknesses.

Morris and Watson produce bevel edged Square Wire in all fabricated metal alloys, carats and colors. Standard sizes (also know as Stock Gauge) are 3mm, 4.8mm and 6.2mm wide in various lengths up to 600mm long. Other sizes between 1.0mm and 8.0mm wide can be custom fabricated with a five working day turnaround time. See below table for standard size alloy and weight estimates.

Stock Gauge is particularly useful in the manufacturing of handmade jewellery. It can be drawn thinner as needed and used as a starting point to produce other wire profiles including Round, Half Round and Oval. It can also be rolled flat to form smaller pieces of Plate and Strip.

Sharp Square Wire is made using draw plates to ensure crisp defined edges, unlike the soft edges found on Stock Gauge. Morris and Watson produces sharp Square Wire from 1.0mm up to 5.0mm wide in all fabricated metal alloys. This item is made to order with a five working day turnaround time and 5 gram minimum order amount.

To guarantee quality, all Square Wire is fabricated onsite at head office in Auckland, New Zealand. Orders can be placed by weight or length and standard sizes and alloys can be purchased directly at any Morris and Watson office.
