Hi folks! Does anybody know where to find hardware for making gags, like ball gags, ring gags, spiders, etc.? Ohio Travel Bag has a few silicone balls and a pony bit but I'm trying to find a wider selection. TIA!

Wouldn't a nerf ball work? Or those squeeze balls used to strengthen your grip?  

Now the spider gag.  that is way over my paygrade. I do not even know what it is.

A lot of these more specialised sorts of hardware are often custom-made for manufacturers in small batches, to their spec. Same as high-end handbag manufacturers, or people who use special widgets for making their pistol holsters. You're probably not going to find what you need off the shelf unfortunately. Making ones and twos is tricky, cos you'll be working with stainless which is a bit of a pig in the home workshop.

Being that I work with stainless and copper.  I ill let you guys in on a little secret.

I have head it said time after time that you can not solder stainless steel   To this I laugh.  OH CONTRAIRE MONFRAIRE 

The secret is the flux .  With this flux  and the advice that you not heat your work directly but heat a couple inch's away.

you can solder stainless,  you can solder copper to stainless,
