Interesting, electric fence wire, never thought of that.

Back in the mid 1960's, I made a cutting bow with two pieces of 3/16 music wire, a 1X3 piece of oak about three feet long, and a spring with about 10 pounds tension.

The cutting wire was a piece of music wire, about 20/1000 or so. Power was a cheap battery charger without any sort of voltage regulation.

A lot of foam cores were cut with that thing back then.

Retired and the days are just too short, busier than ever!
