Remember this old thread about repairing a chewed but otherwise good cage? We discussed touch-up paint, new cages, related stuff. I finally devised a solution of putting stainless steel washers over the spots where the powder coat had been compromised. It's working out great. Here's a sample of a formerly-chewed corner. The bird keeps a cage he knows; I save money; bird is safe! Win-win-win!
When he chews a new spot... I have washers at the ready.

Yes, what a fabulous idea, Gail! I am going to 'steal' it from you and use it on a cage that I have in the basement precisely because it has a couple of spots where the paint chipped off.
