COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update: Whilst we are continuing to ship customer orders, same day dispatch is not guaranteed. Lead times for out of stock / back order and non-stocked items are increasing due to our suppliers operating with reduced staffing levels. International deliveries - please allow extra time for your order to arrive with delays in the transport network worldwide. Some countries have suspended their internal postal system so please check with your local postal service before ordering. Royal Mail is unable to guarantee its UK Next Day Special Delivery service.
We do not publish figures for deflection like this. As they are so low cost, probably best to buy a few different sizes and carry out your own experiments on say 4, 5 or even 6mm silver steel. Gut feel is that 4mm is too small.
