I need to replace a rudder pull pull cable (metal) and possibly get some brass tube to crimp the end loops.

Anyone know the best places to purchase?

Fishing tackle shop - you need nylon covered trace wire - 40lb breaking strain should be fine - they'll do the crimps as wellthumbs up

Can also be obtained from LMS and Ebay, of coursesmile

Mick Reeves does Kevlar string which is excellent and very light.

Its well worth a visit to your local fishing tackle shop - they have loads of stuff of interest to us - and I've found a somewhat similar outlook on life! I'm quite pally with my local guy.

They have fishing trace as Pete etc suggests - great for control connects and other uses!

Crimps they have them too.

Lead - boy do they have lead. They have lead shot, and lead weights and lead paste, tungsten (denser than lead!) - its like an Alladin's Cave.

The guy will think you're nuts - mine does! - because we ask weird questions like "how much is this lead per oz" etc. But it really is worth a visit - and I know nothing about fishing!

For the crimps I use the brass grommets from old servos. They allow you to thread the cable back through to create a loop, flatten real easy and with an extra gentle squash using the cutting part of pliers, does the trick. If you flatten gently first, you can even tighten the cable to get the tension correct.
