    Default Looking for some fine steel mesh

    Guys,

    I need some expanded metal/mesh to use on a bash plate. This does not seem readily available from steel suppliers. And they want to sell me a whole sheet!

    Anyone able to help in the JHB PTA area?

    Picture attached

    Thanks!

    I've also seen mesh with smaller holes and different shapes at Leroy Merlin in Green Stone.
