Wire Mesh Safety Grill For Halogen Bulb Torchiere Floor Lamp ?

Hello,
Have really been beating the bushes for this, with no luck. Tried most of the web lamp repair sites, etc.
Looking to replace the wire mesh safety grill that sits on top on one of those Torchiere halogen (linear) bulb floor pole lamps.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Thanks, Bob

Suggestions for what? What to use? Where to buy? How to make?
Take a piece of it to an industrial supply house or look at mesh screens and expanded metal at www.mcmaster.com

Does anybody even MAKE a high quality halogen floor lamp any more? All I see in the stores any more are 20 buck POS's, definitely not worth spending a lot of time chasing parts for.
That grille on the top only came about due to fires caused by kids or clueless people letting combustibles land on top of the lamp. Used carefully, it is fine to go without it. The things do get awful warm for household use- I <never> leave them running if I am not in the room, and usually end up replacing the second hazardous part, the dimmer switch, with a simple on-off rotary. (I had a couple get hot enough to startle me when I grabbed the pole at switch level.) Never used them on dimmer anyway- that buzzing was so annoying. IMHO, I would never have that style of lamp in a house with kids or elderly folks. Things that can start fires need to be idiot-proof.
As to where to get replacement parts? Drive through any apartment project on the first couple of days of the month, right after moving day. There are usually 2 or 3 standing beside the dumpsters. That is where all mine cam from, when I lived there before buying this house.

Don't you just love the puff of smoke and the burnt object smell that occurs when a fly or moth lands on top of one of those lamps?

Chuckle. Don't even need that- a few months of household dust will do. I fired up one tonight in the spare room, usually used for storage, but pressed into service for testing some junk computers I am tired of tripping over. Haven't been in there after dark since Feb or so. PU!
