DIY vent screens

Made me some vent grills today out of Home Depot rain gutter screen for $3. The first pic is what I ended up with. I had made some out of black screen also but felt like it disappeared (second pic). Thanks to this site for the idea!

Looks good! I did the same. They should come from the factory like that.

Watch this and then cut a thin piece of cardboard to fit as a template for the gutter screen

Extra vent screens

I did my vent screens today and ordered a ton of extra material. Its 430 Stainless steel and I have the template and cut a few extra if anyone wants some. Online they sell for 60 bucks. Just looking to pay for the materials and a little bit of time. I'll make more for 20.00 bucks plus shipping.

I have two ready to go. May need to take a bit of here and there with tin snips. No more than 1/16 in a couple spots. Better to be to big than to small.

I can take paypal if anyone is interested.

Middle Vent Screen

Have you made a middle screen yet. Very interested in purchasing one or template for fabricating one.
Thanks Bergan.
