Wire Mesh
11.4' by 4' of 6 x 6 wire mesh (.1197 x .1197) square opening. The wire is 18 ga. I also have about 18.6' (in 4 sections 55" to 53" )  by 10" to 12" of this mesh as well. I bought 30' by 4' for a project and have used about 60% of it. I paid $632.00 for it as shipping was about $200 and I would like to get $240 for what I have left. It's stout enough to keep out strong critters such as racoons and large, or small, flying critters. Also, it would likely be good for fire screens for a large fireplace. It's rusty as I needed that look for the project. I bought this from McNichols so you can check their website for sizes and weights if you like. It's heavy enough to weld which is one reason I went for this weight.


I have a 302 pound Swedish Soderfors ‘Paragon’ anvil, in great shape, 
that I’m looking to trade for a medium to large (200-400lbs) sized 
church window anvil, practically any condition. 
Please get with me and we can discuss options. 
Located in Idaho but I’ll ship. Photos by request. Thanks.

16 linear feet of woven black iron wire, .028 dia. x 8 mesh (.125 opening), 36" wide.  Perfect for fire screens.  Cost me $130 from McNichols in 2012 and stored inside since receipt; still oiled and rust free.  Best offer but please no low ball numbers.
