Your best bet is to try and hit some Mom & Pop hardware stores. I'm sure the big chains can order you some, but if your like me I want it yesterday  :-D. I have found a small hardware store in NE Georgia that keeps it in stock and will gladly cut you off however much that you need.

Yes, a Mom & Pop store that is in a area were they have a market for # 8 and can/will cut a roll is the best bet, just find one of those now a days !

I keep seeing on these boards;

References that Ace Hardware Co. has # 8 hardware cloth in less than 100 ft. rolls.

Would someone please state " Address "  of these Ace Hardware stores that sell less than 100 ft. rolls.

True, their online CATALOG shows 10 ft. rolls, however, calling their main office, they say " Sorry, Misprint, its only available in 100 ft. rolls "

My experience, course I've been wrong before.

The Ace in Deland, FL has it and will cut it to length but it's pricey...$5/ft @ 36" wide. The same Ace will sell 100' rolls to me for $99.

I have a local store in Raleigh, NC that sells it fairly cheap (I thought). 25' roll for $19 (I think). They also sell by the foot, but at the 25' roll price I couldn't pass it up.

Brushy Mountain also sells it, and ships it.

Several years ago Betterbee  used to handle it, then they stopped.

I was hopeing they had some in stock again.
I believe the price then was $19.99 for 10ft, but the shipping to Missouri was almost as high as the wire.

That is why I bought a 100' roll from Brushy Mountain last December when they had free shipping :-D

If your only using it to close off ventilation holes than why go through all the trouble for #8,  just use metal window screen.
