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

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.
