Fine Iron Mesh

Recommended Posts

Where can I find some? I've found a few vendors for some iron mesh, but I'm looking for something more or less in the 10^-2 rectangle size range.

Since this is a scientific site we ought to be able to assume that where no unit is specified it's the SI unit; so he should be looking for chickenwire

(hole size about 2*10^-2 M).

Somehow I doubt that's right.

Cuthber- Where do you buy your chicken wire? Around here, what we call chicken wire has holes about 4cmx4cm. Metal mesh also goes by the name "hardware cloth" if that'll help you in your search.

My understanding of the term chicken wire would match that of John's. I also made the assumption of SI units which is why I asked, it didn't seem right.

Chicken wire comes in various sizes around that range, but isn't it generally a hexagonal grid?

A few-hundred-microns rectangle size is what I meant.

That's what I get for not going to sleep. :doh:

 

At this point, I'm actually just wondering how feasible fine iron mesh would be. Is there a reason that no one seems to carry pure or almost pure iron mesh?

I don't know, but it seems like oxidation would be a big problem for any very fine ironwork. What do you need it for?
