0.010 t 0.002 Inch dll—tsr in depleted ureniuc (W3«),
normal ureniuc (Mballay), and enriched ureal— (U-235).

A litersture search showed that KUlaann* (1) had pro-
duo*4 tubelloy wire 0.020 Inch In dlaaotar by mgln|.M
Ho also succeeded in producing short lengths of 0.013 -
0.014 inch disaster wire by drawing. The major difficulties
encountered la his work were listed as pointing, lubrication
and Uok cf proper equip—nt. Failures arising froa the
inertial forces oaused by starting the Taugha oa—eroial
drawing —chine resulted .in the design sad construction of
a low speed —chine, Figure 1.
Successful drawing of tuballoy wire through sapphire
die* by saploying a 0.0005 inch thick coating of electro-
plated copper on the vlro wsa reported by Thoapson (2).
The coated tuballoy wire was cold s—ged to 0.0} inch, then
keforenoeo listed on Pure 22.
**Tubelloy vlro 0.020 inoh in disaotsr had been made in 1945
by swaging rod. Re foraal report on that work was written
as tbs experl—ntal data wore very United.
