Sounds like you are talking about a roll forming machine, you could possibly use a set of slip rolls with wire grooves machined into the bars. Looks like Harbor Freight Tools has one for $129.00


Maybe someone has one in your area.

Subject: [aprssig] Forming wire loops

I am looking for ideas to help form wire loops from wire that is already of larger diamater.
I was thinking of making up a base board with some pulley wheels and feed the wire in.
As it goes over the pulleys, a gentle pressure is applied and helps bend the wire into a smaller coil.
I tried a bucket and failed misserably.
Ideas ?
