Re: Fine Wire Screen Material Found in my Kitchen

Nelson Moyer <ku0a@...>

Before all of you go to Walmart and spend your hard earned dollars on coffee filters, be aware that I sent Bill Welch a sample of 400 mesh stainless steel that I prefer for window screening in HO scale. We are all awaiting Bill’s learned evaluation relative to it’s suitability for the SAL car.


My coffee filter is crude by comparison, so I highly recommend that you wait for Bill’s evaluation. I have a lifetime supply of the 400 mesh, and I’m willing to sell it at cost plus a first class stamp. My cost at the time of purchase was 15¢ per square inch. I don’t yet know how many square inches it takes for the SAL car, but your total cost is certain to be under $2.00 and probably $1.00 including postage.

It's would be good to define the material a little better. Going to
Walmart and using that description would probably end up making me want
to strangle someone [grin]!
