I'm looking to make a few egg floats and maybe dummy plugs from wood cutoffs but can't find anything other than 100's of feet of wire. where do you go to get just a few feet or so? and do I need special pliers to work with the wire or will my standard straight pliers and dikes do the job?

Prebent wires are available online, Google "Plug Building Supplies"

A pair of round tip pliers are really handy for bending anything else, like tail loops.
