Can anybody tell me what wire is used for the shrouds on a wave? I was under the impression that they are 1/8" stainless but a magnet sticks to the bare sections of the shrouds. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've tried attaching the same magnet to other stainless objects and no stickie. Any help would be appreciated

They are stainless.

"Stainless Steels and Magnets

Steel is a metal that magnets stick to because iron can be found inside steel. ... While some have more chromium, some might have more iron in them. That is why you will find that while some types of stainless steels are magnetic, other stainless steel types will not make magnets stick to them."
