V-belt guide wire

I need to fab up a special belt guide but don't know where to get the thick, stiff, wire. I've checked the local hardware, Lowe's and a junk yard. Appreciate any ideas or what it's called so I can do a search.

Thanks for your time,

Ev

Re: V-belt guide wire

Went through the eyebolts at the local hardware today. Decided on one that's attached at both sides, in larger sizes they're called lifting eyes I believe? This one has a 1/4" bolt, plan on cutting off the end of the eye resulting in a "Y" to hold the belt.

Thanks again,
