I want to replace aluminium fly wire with stainless steel, how easy is it to trim the stainless wire to the correct size?
Hi @IanPaterson. I apologise for the delay in my reply.
Please let me know if you require further information about the process or had other questions.
Hi @IanPaterson sorry for not responding earlier.
I actually haven’t used the stainless steel flyscreen. With our house the rear end is BAL29 - (fire prone) so those windows were preinstalled with stainless steel bushfire mesh. However the front bedroom windows I replaced are 2metres from the ground and only required standard flyscreen. I can only think of what I’ve used when cutting aluminium material for outside and just used tin snips.
@MitchellMc has a lot of experience and knowledge, thanks for your advise ☺️
Hi @IanPaterson - if you have an angle grinder, you could use a 1mm steel/stainless steel cut off wheel - Flexovit make one, it’s available at Bunnings, cheers Deb
