Louise, Companies that specialize in boat/marine hardware almost
always carry a wide variety of stainless steel cable, from very,
very fine to HUGE. That’s where I get mine. Unfortunately I am in
Singapore so I don’t have a US source for you.

Louise; Hello. Try an industrial supply company. There was one in
Sandusky, OH and their motto was :“tools for industry” - find a
company with a similar mission. You’ll be looking for aircraft
cable - which is stainless steel. Also comes in different braids
and wire bundles.

Louise, I have purchased stainless cable at a ship’s supply store.
Most marinas have this type of store, essentially a hardware store
for boat owners. Joel Schwalb @Joel_Schwalb

I missed this post but try the aircraft industry. Look in the phone
book for suppliers usually located around the local airport. They
carry all sorts of stainless steel cable. Things you can’t even
imagine. Strapping as well as cable. Frank Goss

Check out Small Parts, Inc. (a great source for small quantities of
many interesting materials).
