Radiator rock screen

What is the gauge of the original and are you looking to replicate an original? I would lean to a heavier gauge to prevent wind from causing it to pulsate back and forth against the radiator. McMaster usually ships the same day, if I order something, I get it the next day. I don't think shipping to Canada is an issue.

Also, as to the McMaster-Carr Catalog. I always had junior engineers coming to my office to borrow my copy. I eventually kept it locked in a file cabinet. Every time I received a new catalog I had several people asking for the old one. There is so much info, that engineers love them when they are designing something. Have you ever looked at E-Bay to see what some people get for a copy. I buy everything from them. What I pay for a box of Stainless Screws, I get six or eight from a hardware store.

Thank you for the info. What would be the proper screen to buy and the wire gauge. I would prefer the square running diagonally. Also being in Canada, I am not sure whether I can get this shipped from McMaster-Carr

@ckowner, i live in South West British Columbia. I order from mcmaster carr all the time. we usually recieve our orders 23 hours after placing them. it is crazy fast and efficient. it has become not even worth while to drive to town to pick up basic shop supplies.

I have seen two screens and they had a lot of differences in construction. I measured the wire on center and the mesh was 1/2" on one and 5/8" on the other. The mounting points are generally in the same spots but are of different styles. And then there is the chrome surround, one narrow and thin the other wider and thicker. I can get more measurements if you would like.
