Where can I find dead soft copper wire in a variety of gauges in (or near) Ontario? :) Thanks.

Or are you only interested in buying locally?

corfil.ca sells wire by the pound, I don't know about dead soft though.
I see their copper wire slection involves wire labed with the condition of "soft". So in the traditional scale that would be one degree harder than dead soft. I think this is probably not labeled traditionally though. I believe this to be "dead soft" wire.
From wikipedia: "Practically, most jewelry wire is sold now as either dead soft, half-hard, or hard, with dead soft being wire manufactured with a hardness of 0, half-hard being wire manufactured with a hardness of 2, and fully hardened wire being wire with a hardness of 4."
I know some jewelry making suppliers, but they are online wholesalers.
