A think it was ANS that had metal/rubber shrouds. I sold my last one awhile back.

I came across some very interesting scrap metal at my new job the other day, the material is inconel, they use the pieces as a flame diffuser for laying asphalt I believe. The best way to describe the piece is a double punched louver. For every punch in the machine, it makes a "one up, two down" pattern. I'll grab a piece for pictures tomorrow, but I think with some patience and a shaping block you could make some neat cheese grater shrouds.

Inconel is mean-tough, you'll want pieces that are very close to the final size you need. That would make a hell of a shroud though.

The scraps we have around are plenty big enough, I just need to get ahold of a shroud so I can model a shaping block, this stuff is pretty flexible if you follow the same line as the louvers, bending against the grain isn't too hard by hand, the trick is making it look clean.

Inconel doesn't bend to well FYI...

These scraps are quite thin, I'll get pics tomorrow as promised and show you. You can literally roll up a piece of it if you go with the direction of the louvers using just a couple fingers.

Ah, I'm used to the thicker stuff.
