Hi Satburn,

I also ordered mine from here I ordered 1 spool of .25 I think last week of July or 1st week of August and lost hope that It would ever arrive, To my surprise it arrived last Monday it was enclosed in a postcard like envelope with two stamps( I though someone sent me a postcard lol!)... Big Grin

RE: Places to buy Wire/Wick/Mesh, and wire technical info
Has anyone used mesh from wires.co.uk?

What's with all those different colours?

Haven't used them but I'd guess stainless steel #400 mesh should be exactly what it says and not something that's been coloured. Perhaps worth an e-mail to check?
