Where did you get this wire mesh?  It is awfully fine ---

Does it happen to be from Mcmaster or Grainer for a decent price?  Or is it from one of the actual manufacturers like:

Nope, no wholesale mesh here. The center piece is a bell-style faucet aerator. Included in the package are several pieces of wire mesh in a few different degrees of fine-ness, as well as several other parts that ended up being crucial to the final look of the arc reactor. I used two of the pieces of mesh that were included, one finer than the other, and fit them together with the pattern offset.

I found my faucet head in a box of spare parts in the garage, but you can get them at your local hardware store for a few bucks. Look for the one labelled "designer bell-style faucet aerator" (like this, although mine was polished nickel, not polished brass).

This is my signature; there are many like it, but this one is mine.
