Its not only grain that gets burned!!!


Welcome to the Peoples Republic of New Zealand where the tyranny of distance and overwhelming stealth taxes are only over shadowed by good ol' price gouging.

Building a 2" convertible combination column.
Trying to find some copper mesh packing locally in New Zealand - any Kiwis know of a reasonable source?

Nuntius has pointed me at a source in the States he trusts (thanks fella) - thought I'd have an ask here before I hit "purchase" online.

I got mine at Bin Inn. Not cheap, but I only needed one.

Aussie here, and I had the same problem. If you have access to a metal lathe, here's a solution I came up with - copper nuggets. It's virtually free, and makes an excellent packing material.
