Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

If anyone's still following this..... here's the first section of fence (minus guitar string wires in the angled heads - on order). It's obviously not in it's final resting place. The 8' posts are courtesy KS Laser Designs (who were kind enough to add them the their site when I asked about availabil...

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Yes, it's a tricky one. It perhaps doesn't show well in the photo but the mesh is something like 'gunmetal' in colour, perhaps a tad dark and bit glossy. I'm thinking lightening and matting (is that a word?) the colour will look a bit less intrusive. I guess there's only one way to find out!

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

And here it is. Obviously it needs rotating 45' and light spray of grey (not silver I think) primer and some chalks for effect. Shout out to The Mesh Company for speedy free delivery :-) And it's flat/unbent.

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

So, after going down the rabbit hole on 't web, I've ordered some of the insect mesh linked below. Getting some to have a look at proved a tad difficult (the local pet shop now think I'm a weirdo) so fingers cross. Cutting it so it's 'diamond' rather than 'square' is going to be a tad wasteful but s...

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Thanks for all the replies again. I shall obtain some samples of the various options and see what they look like 'in the flesh' so to speak.
Cheers!

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Rodent mesh looks interesting too. As noted the size of the wire might be an issue. I can feel a series of trials coming on to see how various suggestions 'work' in place on the layout.

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

The bottom photo looks promising - getting all the carpet off might be a tad time consuming. Goes off to lift corners of carpets 'just for a look'...

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Thanks again for the replies - food for thought & search :-) The material suggestion is interesting - I need to look at net curtains perhaps! And a plough through the Scalelink site... Medical gauze has also been suggested.
Cheers!

Re: O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Thanks for the replies. Someone, LCUT?, does the concrete posts with the angled bit on the top, so guitar strings would do for the support wires and barbed wire is available for the angled strands at the top - the real problem is the mesh. I got some exquisite stuff from HobbyHolidays for walk-way g...

O Gauge Wire Mesh Fencing

Hi, does anyone know of a supplier of O gauge mesh/security fencing, the kind you get round a fuel depot. Or the bits to make such (the Woodland Scenics stuff is way to 'clunky').
Cheers

Re: Rivet Embossing Tool

Hi, just an update. Though the e-mail apparently bounced, it did in fact get read and replied too. Everyone has been very helpful and the tool is now on it's merry way :-) It's really nice that Metalsmith and MRC have gone the extra mile, well done.

Re: Rivet Embossing Tool

Unfortunately saw this reported a year ago, no communication possible with Midland Railway Centre. Thanks for that, it all seems a bit weird ;-) I'll keep searching industrial tool places, I'm sure small presses like this were all over the place back in the day (even if a bit of adaption is needed).

Rivet Embossing Tool

Hi, I hope this is the right place. Does anyone know if the Meatalsmith rivet embossing tool, specifically 7mm, or something like is available anywhere? The Midland Railway Center web site link to their shop doesn't work, and Metalsmith's e-mail is full (not accepting new messages). Got a Queen Mary...
