ask your local friends, I think everyone has a story about some hole in the wall hardware place that has _______ whenever they couldn't find it at the home despot, builder's scare, or that other one. (the mom and pop theme is on the money)
be happy and make others happy.

Country hardware stores. It's old stock, I don't think they can get any more. Call ahead next time your headed out to the boonies (or maybe you're already in the boonies). I found a 100' roll for about $25.

Dumb question (since I'm brand new at this and ran into the same problem today...). can you double up on 1/4" screen?

I have ordered some from Mcmaster Carr and the price wasn't too bad. Then I found it locally at a small hardware store. The wire diameter isn't as thick but it works well for SBB, and no shipping charges.
