What's everyone using to fasten their expanded metal? Any pics?
Did you see my post a page back? - rebar tie wire worked well for me. Any home center will have it. A pair of lineman's pliers (also called Kleins) and you can twist it up and snip easily.

I didn't want to wait for Monday to go to his shop to weld it up, so used rebar wire tie to connect it.
Cut so pattern continues.
