Red Special: constructing the fret wire?

Mr. May,

I was wondering if you could enlighten me on something. I’m trying to create a guitar entirely with hand tools in a similar manner to how you created your signature instrument (a true beauty) and need help on part of it. For the life of me I can’t figure out how to construct the fret wire, without buying commercial fret wire that is. How did you make yours? A reply of any sort would be massively appreciated, thank you so much.
