Strange you only got 20" worth. It is darned hard to overtighten the
rolls. I would fill the column and if that means buying more, so be it.
I would be interested in what mesh he is using. I know it can't be the
Amphora mesh for that rolls to form slugs 15cm (5.9 inches) long, and I've
never found anyone who is strong enough to wind it too tight.
Any clues "jfpottery"?
All the best,
