. I did discover the square wire supposedly  1 mm square didn't go into a hole until it was 1.3mm in diameter.
The diagonal of square wire is 1.414 times the length of the sides.  You did well to get 1mm square wire into a 1.3mm diameter hole, but 0.6mm should fit rather loosely in a 1 mm hole.
With kind regards

Thanks I'll blame the spell chrcker, I've just had a problem ordering the 0.6 mm wire. The spell checker kept changing the address line  "road" to regards. Also not until I ordered, did it come up temporarily out of stock it won't be delivered till 5th July at the earliest...I'm glad I ticked normal post not 24 hour delivery.

Yes you are right I forgot that, either way  the 1mm wire seems too heavy, giving a real post size of 6 inches square.
 Having now found a supplier of 0.6 square wire which comes out at a real 3.6 inches square, A coat of paint and it'll be about 4 inches square the normal post size.
