Interplane strut solder terminals


I am restoring a Hostetler Bucker Jungmiester. It is missing the Interplane struts and I am in the process of making them.

For the life of me, I can not find where to source the solder terminals that go on the ends of the 1/8 in piano wire to mount to the wings. I am not even sure what they are officially called. Thanks in advance for any info provided.

Are you talking about the kind of wire terminals that I used in this article?

I bought them on ebay. You have to look up the wire gauge sizes and find one that will match the 1/8" music wire diameter, and match the size of the bolt you plan to use. It was sort of an ordeal for me to get the data all sorted out, but it's not impossible.
