Straw Bail and Wire Stucco Mesh connecting with bailing wire
// this is an amateur observation//
Im doing some retrofit repairs to a natural building construction. In order to seal it up more efficiently I am connecting stucco mesh for future cement plaster application. To connect straw bail to stucco mesh use bailing wire. Cut lengths of about 12 inches and fold in half and the twist wire a little. You can experienent with this. Longer could be better but harder to get deep into the straw bail while shorter wire lengths do not pull mesh in as tight to the bail after being inserted. Push through mesh into straw bail. It's ok if it bends a little but the deeper into the straw bail that the wire goes, the tighter the hold at that point. Lightly hammer in end of folder wire after inserting each end by hand. Questions? Let me know.
