Titanium hardware cloth? on 01/30/2012 16:53:42 MST Print View

I know there is such a thing as titanium hardware cloth, but does anyone have a source for reasonably priced small amounts? Sure would like to get my hands on some for DIY pot support projects. Maybe we should get a group buy going?

search for wire cloth, or titanium wire cloth. it exists, but its expensive and hard to buy in small quantities. I recommend considering thin guage stainless or carbon steel wire cloth instead. volumes for the kind of projects I'm speculating you're wanting this for make the weight savings of ti marginal.

About a hundred bucks per square foot at McMaster-Carr. A lucky person might find some at a surplus place for less, who knows?

Mcmaster is usually not a great source when it comes to expensive materials like this one:

Try a company that actually makes the manufacturer and you may get a better price and a better product:
