Looking for cheap perforated metal mesh...need help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Alright guys, Ya know on most cases for fans, they've got the round hole metal mesh? Some also have the hex mesh...
This is all I can find at a decent price:

Anyone know of a place I can get it cheaper? I like can't find any on amazon or ebay and its kinda sad... I thought this would be an easier product to find...guess not.

I've found threads talking about Mcmaster having the same mesh but I don't think the prices are any better for what ya get.

If anyone has like a secret site for getting this stuff for case mods I'd greatly appreciate it. I've got a pretty hefty opening in the front of my case and I need to get some mesh on the front.

Office supply store. Staples, Office Depot, Officemax- probably even Walmart.

You can get the Staples branded ones for pretty cheap and they have a bunch of different sizes. Im sure you can find one thatll get you enough mesh. Plus you dont have to mess with shipping thumb.gif Laptop ventilation stands work too, Ive seen them for less than $10 at Frys.

Rep man! I'll pickup a metal perforated trash can tonight...unroll it. Should be my cheapest bet.

You can find metal mesh in some hardware stores as well (at least in Belgium). "computer" or "modders" mesh is ridiculously overpriced.

EDIT: way too late. ...
