Just for thought you really don't need that heavy weight expanded metal for a charcoal basket. It really is is a just cage to hold the charcoal. I've been using the lighter stuff for years and have never had one burn out. Guess it all depends on whats available in your area. But the lighter stuff is so much easier to bend. Nice basket though.
