Hi all, does anyone have a set of cleaning wires for a gtt bobcat torch ?
I bought mine second hand at Flameoff several years ago and didnít receive the wires at the time, didnít realise I needed them either.
Now I find that no one is able to supply them here in the UK and to get them sent from the USA I was quoted, if you can believe this, 66 US dollars to post the wires to the UK. The wires themselves cost 1 dollar!!!
So if anyone has a spare set, or ones they no longer need I would love to have them. Thanks!

I bought my Bobcat second hand, and have never had any special cleaning wires. I just use any old wire that I have and that fit in the holes (I think the one I use is a bit of 0.8mm silver wire from my scrap pot).

Or if you want the deluxe option, which still costs less than £2 -
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stainless-Through-Desoldering-Welding-0-7-1-3mm/dp/B07KXG9H45/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1549724648&sr=8-15&keywords=reaming+wires

If you search 'reaming wire set' on Amazon you'll come up with different types. Or if you have a welding supplies shop near you, you could buy a set from a human!
