Default Need Source For Push Rod Wire

I cracked up my HH Slow Ultra Stick yesterday and in the process lost the elevator push rod. Unfortunately they're on back order from Horizon Hobbies so I need to make my own replacement. It is rather fine wire , .032" or .047". I can't find this diameter in the Dubro catalog or anywhere else. Can someone provide me a source where I could possibly find some. Thanks

Perhaps something else from this list may help you, if you can adapt one to fit?

Stock unavailable, but you can make your own replacement.
Dubro doesn't carry that size, but look for music wire or piano wire.
Hardware stores or online retailers like McMaster-Carr might have it.
.032" or .039" would be suitable substitutes for a .032" pushrod.
Ensure chosen wire is strong and flexible for flight control.
