I'm just going for a rebuild as everything is original. The spokes were a little rusty so they have been replaced. I need help, advice, ideas regarding the wire wraps that were on the spoke crossover points. Now a days they use 5 wire wraps that are then soldered. My original crossover reinforcements looked more like hog rings. Does anyone have any knowledge of this technology or how to approximate it? I can’t find any hog rings that have a small enough diameter. Here is a before replacement
