Hello Ron,

Edison links vary from .0175 to .0192 in diameter.  I use .020 annealed 
stainless steel wire to make links for them all except for the O and M which I 
use .018 annealed steel wire.  The O link is longer than the M link.

Staple wire is too small in my opinion as it is .0175 on one side and .0186 on 
the other as it is not round.  The length is about right for the bent weight N 
but too long for the C or H.

I've been told that an ordinary office style staple is the right length and 
diameter for this link wire.  How far from the truth is that?

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if there are any printed or "known" specifications for the 
fabrication dimensions of all of the different Edison reproducer "S" or "C" 
hooks that connect the diaphragm to the stylus?  Like actual center to center 
distance, radius on the ends, wire diameter, etc.  Any info would be helpful as 
I would like to machine a few small fixtures to make them instead of trial and
