Where to buy 1/8" hardware cloth in small amounts?
 
I want to buy some 1/8" mesh hardware cloth or metal screen and can only find in 100' rolls. Does anyone know where I can buy as little as 5' or 10'? It can be either 2' or 4' wide.

Thanks,
jt

A local h/w store? We sold it in this size.

Ace Hardware.

And watch out for puncture wounds.

Cutting this springy stuff by yourself in a crowded storeroom was like wrestling, and mostly you lose the match.

Thanks for the quick replies!

I've tried Lowes and Home Depot and they only carry 1/4" mesh. There is an Ace nearby and I will check tomorrow morning. I did try a search on the Ace Hardware website and they only listed 1/2" & 1/4" under hardware cloth.

There is also a True Value nearby & will try that.

You might have to call; sometimes they can and will recommend a store somewhere else that has it. I needed screening in a pretty large sheet and I had to drive 45 min. to get it.

Ace Hardware didn't have in small amts. They had 50' rolls of something marked 27 ga that looked small enough mesh for I think $69. True Value, Menards and Tractor Supply Co had only 1/2" and 1/4" mesh. Doesn't look good & thanks for trying.

like Yoyizit said, i too go to a local mom-and-pop hardware for any screening i need, and they'll sell me any size i need, and always have whatever gauge/material i need.
last time i only needed a 6"x12" piece.... 75 cents....

Sometimes you have to pick up the phone (call, not text) or go to the store....

"Do It Best" is another chain of smaller hardware stores.
