I've owned a couple and have an excellent copy made by Bertold Peicl (he was one of the jewelers who made them for Gahr) but never handled enough of them to form a solid opinion. I can draw silver but unless its an unusual shape, it's easier to just buy it. You can get wire as round, half round, square, and triangle in any gauge from 2 to 40 wink
