In-Stock Metal Baskets

Featuring Durable Steel Wire Baskets

Three M Tool manufactures these metal wire baskets, using only the highest-quality materials in the production process. Choose from baskets made from carbon steel, an inexpensive but strong material that is ideal for indoor industrial applications, such as manual solvent cleaning and oil dipping. We also offer baskets made from 304 stainless steel, which offers excellent protection against corrosion in mildly caustic work environments. For superior corrosion protection, baskets made from 316 stainless steel are also available.

You'll Find the Appropriate Steel Wire Basket Size for Your Needs

You can select from multiple outside dimensions for your basket, as well as a variety of mesh lining size options, so getting the perfect steel metal basket size for your specific needs is never a problem. If you can't find the size you need from our ready to ship in-stock basket inventory, you can design your own made to order basket with our convenient and easy-to-use real-time online designing tool. Our in-stock items are available for immediate delivery, and custom metal wire baskets are ready to ship within two weeks after placing your order. A number of handle and lid options are also available.

Materials and Options

With several different materials, sizing and accessory options available through our custom wire basket service, it's easy to design the product that's right for you. Here's a quick guide to a few of the many options we offer:

  • Lining Two basic types of mesh lining are available for our wire baskets: Welded Wire mesh or Woven Wire mesh. Welded mesh is formed by laying horizontal and vertical wires on top of one another and welding them together; Woven mesh has the wires woven together similar to cloth. Welded mesh lining is stiffer with more consistent openings, whereas woven is more flexible which can be more durable in rough applications. Woven wire mesh also allows for greater selection of opening sizes with smaller mesh sizes and wire diameters. The most important consideration when choosing a mesh size and material is that it will hold your parts securely and safely. Openings should always be slightly smaller that the smallest parts.
  • Material Three types of base materials are commonly available on our wire baskets. Natural finish carbon steel is our most economical option, with 304 and 316 stainless steel both available to improve corrosion resistance.
  • Size Both round and rectangular wire baskets are available. We have the capability to build rectangular baskets from 3" x 3" x 2" and up, and round baskets as small as 4" OD and 2" tall.
  • Lid For any application requiring a lid, both hinged and removable lid options are available on our rectangular wire baskets. Hinges can be outfitted with thumb clasps or compression latches for extra security.
  • Handles Over 20 different handle styles are available for both our rectangular and round wire baskets.
