I've been trying to find the 1/8 MESH at Lowes and Home Depot. They don't sell them. 1/4 is the smallest and that's too big for a bottom screen.
Where do you buy yours? (I'm located in the San Francisco Bay Area - around San Jose to be more precise).

I see they sell aluminum screen that's flexible for window screens but to me it doesn't seem rigid enough.

I buy it regularly at Orchard Supply Hardware. I think it was about $2.50-2.75 per foot for 24" wide a couple of weeks ago when I last got some.

My local Ace Hardware orders it in for me. 36"x100' for $90.

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I couldn't find the right stuff locally (and didn't want to pay huge shipping cost for a roll, or wait for shipping), so I used 2 layers of 1/4" mesh (I think?) offset to give the exact same size as the varroa mesh I purchased from Dadant.  It was under $10 for a 25' roll, so I can make alot of SBB's, even doubled up.  Also, if you only need to make a few (and have some other stuff to order), you can buy individual sheets of plastic varroa screen from Dadant (I used one sheet to make 2 partial screened bottom boards and they are only about $2.75 each sheet.
