Sources for 316 Wire Mesh
I know the industry pretty well, and obviously depending ont he quantity that you need and are looking for, I would buy from 1 of these 3 places.
These are probably your 3 best bets when it comes to best price and high quality, no scammers.
I have also noticed that people here in this forum buy only a very small quantity at a time. Would it be worth it to pay less per sq ft and just buy more than u need and have it as your reserved? There is an unlimited amount of uses for this material, trust me, it is not that worst thing to have laying around the house. You will always find a way to use it.

|proaudio55||A magnet won't stick strong enough to hold it in place ..... You'll something like this product: "Zoo Med MS-1 Magclip Magnet Suction Cups" (Do a google search for it)|

from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stainless_steel
"There are different types of stainless steels: when nickel is added, for instance, the austenite structure of iron is stabilized. This crystal structure makes such steels virtually non-magnetic and less brittle at low temperatures."

home depot or lowes or any place like that won't carry it.... I've looked and found nothing but galvanized... Look in the power sellers area there is someone in there selling per the size you need....
I used the plastic guttering material and bought suction cups with hooks, so far so good...

Stainless Steel Mesh for Moss Wall
Not sure if this should go here or DIY but I am going to build a moss wall and have been leaning towards SS mesh and magnets after doing a little research. Just curious about other experiences with doing it this way. Is SS the way to go? Where can you pick up the materials? Do they sell it a home depot, I looked online and the quantities you had to buy were a lot more than I need. How powerful do the magnets have to be? Any info would be much appreciated.
