Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen 19 and 21 gauge wire. How
about using 18 and 20 gauge wire with a drawplate?

Get a draw plate and either A calliper or a micrometer. Guages are
at least a century out of date.

Hi There,

Im not sure of a source for that gauge specifically but it seems
like a good drawplate would to the trick. At that diameter you should
be able to easily draw the wire by hand.

I use 19 and 21 gauge in argentium a lot, but I don’t think I’ve
ever seen it in copper.

Laura,

You can accomplish this simple task by using a drawplate to reduce
the size of the wire to specifications needed. A brown and sharp
wire gauge is a perfectly acceptable tool for determining the correct
gauge size between draws. In addition to the above, access to a
torch is important.You’ ll need to anneal the wire between draws The
process of pulling the wire thru the drawplate tempers the wire. A
lubricant is also a good idea. Bur-life, or its equivalent works
well.

You might find it useful to buy a drawplate and make your own 19 & 21
wire.
