What did you use to tie down the wires? Are those AM items?

Hi Bill,

The rigging is described in the build log (Page 18 and 41):

Basically it's 'Steelon' mono-filament with Gaspatch turnbuckles where required and Albion Alloys micro-tube (Nickel Silver).

How does one decide which Gaspatch turnbuckle(s) to use?
