Would this be a product good for crafting a cage for pet rats?

Asked by Rats July 19, 2020

Answers

It probably would work quite well. It cuts fairly easily with metal cutting shears and can be shaped. might be tricky to shield cut ends of the wire from the occupants of the cage.

Answers

I just use a pair of wire cutters to cut this to the size I need. You have to cut one piece at a time, it doesn't cut like using scissors on paper but once you get into doing it, it goes quite fast. A heavy duty staple gun will work great with this cloth.

yes it will keep , however, it needs to be buried 2ft deep and minimum 2ft wide in the ground. i had a skunk issue under the deck and was able to keep it away.

Could this be spot welded to a metal frame?

Asked by toothdr November 26, 2019

It could, but welding galvanized metal is a very bad idea for the poisonous gasses that are given off when you do. NOT SAFE.

I am building an enclosure for my bearded dragon. Can the heat lamp sitting on top of the steel damage it or be harmful?

Asked by Tony0988 August 31, 2019

The hardware cloth can handle the heat easily.......but not knowing the configuration of your lamp....I'm a little concerned how stable it would be sitting on hardware cloth.

Does this work for stucco?

Asked by Nickname June 25, 2019
3
Answers

Don't see why it wouldn't work.....but it's quite expensive to use just for stucco. I've been around enough home building to have noticed that what's typically used for stucco is chicken wire (or something very similar).. There are surely others who know more about this than I.

Many imperfections
It works as wire... It has a lot of imperfections, bent wire, and won't lat flat when rolled out. I've gotten better rolls in the past but this one was just janky.

Used this item to complete a rabbit pen we purchased online. It fit in just like the manufacturer’s fencing. Easy to install. Had to do an in-store pick-up with Covid 19 conditions so would have preferred a shipping option but otherwise fencing has performed. Be advised that there is a lead warning exposure.

Does the job
My neighbor installed a fence between our yards and unfortunately it does not reach the ground by about 2-3". So I used this wire on the bottom to enclose the yard (having problems with critters). But I had to cut strips about 8" wide from the grated wire which is not that easy as it is awkward - even with my metal snippers. After using quite a bit of the wire, noticed on the paper packaging that there is a warning that there is lead - probably used to solder the wire together I am guessing. Anyways, be careful where you use it (not sure I would want to use it around a vegetable garden) and if you touch it and cut it, be sure to wash your hands.

Purchased this hardwire cloth to build a 3' x 3' rock screen for my landscape project. It worked perfectly. I was surprised that is was as strong as it was holding up to the weight of the rock and soil and had not stretched out over many days of heavy usage.
