It is a D section but instead of the flat side, it is
slightly convex, a double D.
hi andrew, i’m getting a mind picture of a lopsided marquis for
the cross section of this wire. i own a drawplate that is
marquis shaped that is even on both sides. what exactly is “not
coming out” on the shallow side?
i can tell you the problems i’ve had with the drawplate i own
but am not sure if it would apply to your case. i’ve found that
i have to start with much larger rectangular stock than i
thought originally. iwas always getting a flat spot on the
’belly’ of the wire. i take this oversized rectangular stock (
especially beefy for the width of the cross section) with an
extra long dog. i then start at a much larger opening and work
down to the size i need, making sure i’ve filled the cross
section before i get to the size i need. my drawplate starts at
6mm x3mm, if this is the size i need, i make a real long dog and
draw it through a different drawplate that is close in cross
section shape, like an oval first. then go to the marquise
drawplate. then go to your court drawplate.
