Uses for guitar string

RELATED TOPICS: ANTENNA
I recently discovered how useful a wound guitar string could be for modeling projects. I broke an antenna on a model and decided to use some guitar string to replace it.

Some other great uses for wound guitar strings include braided gas lines and radiator hoses; unwind strings for antennas, return springs for throttle linkage; pull the wire out of the middle, leaving the wound part as the spring; and some strings have little round ends that'd be great for pulleys.

You don't necessarily have to buy new strings. Find a friend who plays guitar, or ask at guitar stores if they have any old strings. They'll probably give them to you instead of just throwing them away. One complete set of old strings will keep your projects sounding good for a long time.
