The linear loading wire does not act as a truss.  The element tube is triple
and double thickness out to the loading wire attachment.

If the loading wire is also an element truss I would be concerned about
using such soft aluminum.

I bought a 1 lb spool from McMaster-Carr for about $20 (pn 8904K85).
