Hello Proud Maxey Owners,

I've decided to have a bash at making my own Maxeys, and I would be very grateful if someone who already has some could take some really clear, big(ish) pictures of one (particularly the grill front bit) and post them up?

Just as a side thought, if I copy the instructions and diagrams out of my Exhibition and Pet Mice book and post those too, perhaps this thread could be a sticky to help newbies make their own Maxeys?

As a random thought, if every NMC member made just one Maxey and donated it to the club, think how many there'd be to hire!

Many thanks in advance!

That's great Cait, thank you :)

Now I'm wondering where the bloomin' heck I'm going to find grill bits like that... Anyone have any ideas?

I'm afraid the last people who made them had to solder individual bits of wire together... fun eh?

The bars are punch bar fronts which are used to make fronts for cage bird show cages.Canary or finch size would be needed.I suggest you get a copy of a news paper called cage and aviary available from w h smiths to look for a supplier.

I've got some wire fronts going spare.
I think I have around 10 of them also an unfinished maxey to work from as well, they came with the last set of maxey's I picked up but are of no use to me.
pm if interested.

Well, Steve's selling me some grills (Thank you!) so I will take pictures and do a step by step guide, and let you all know how I get on :cool:
