This subject has been addressed on an old post. I'm going to link the post and start new.
I have a Gottlieb Snow Derby I am working on and one of the wires on one of the spinners broke off at the edge of the spinner. I have some spare spinners but I don't have one with the checker board pattern.
First, what I did was to drill a hole into the side of the spinner with a small hand drill and some jewelers drill bits.
To make the "Z" bend in the .047 piano wire I have I did not use a wire bender. I figured out how to make my bends with a pair of alligator vise grips.
The problem for me with making the "Z" bend and then trying to install the bent wire into the drilled hole was getting the wire in the right position before I bonded it into the spinner. The advantage of using vise grips to make your bends as opposed to using a wire bender tool is that you can bond in a nice long straight piece of wire and then bend it to what you need after the installation.
I used a piece of straight wire.
After I drilled into the spinner as deep as I could I proceeded to bond the wire. What I finally wound up doing is bonding in the straight piece of wire that was long enough to give some working room. My epoxy of choice is PC-11. But I suppose JB Weld or any other 2-part epoxy will work just as well.
After my bond sat for 48 hours to cure, I started making my bends. Again. for making my bends all I used was a pair of alligator vise grips. I have two pairs of alligator vise grips. One pair has a wider nose. I used the pair with the narrower nose.
Then I clipped off the excess.
The spinner is installed and is working good.
Here it is at rest.
And after I gave it a spin.
Eventually, I want to buy one of those wire benders but for .047 diameter wire my vise grips seem to be working OK for me
