IBM AT power supply case/cooling question

Look for brass screen, local "old style" hardware store. Better conduction
which makes a better EMI/RFI sheild and less prone to corrosion over ferrous
materials except those that are galvanically coated.

Does the metal screen material you can buy at Home Depot or the likes
work? I think it is made of Aluminum, but I've never really checked (as I
find the nylon screen easier to work with, so that is what I have always
bought when rescreening windows or doors)
