Bathe the galvy in vinigar (for a LONG time) or lemon juice for a small-moderate amount of time. I suggest taking a small piece (or some random rings) and experementing. This strips down the galvy s ...

I don't think that butted maille should have any problem unless he's planning on getting stabbed multiple times in relatively the same place. I got bored one day and took my (very sharp) 19" dagger w ...

I had that problem, screw tightening that top bolt. I took it out so as I could sharpen them. Then I put the bolt back in. It's not hard to get the right tight....ness? Just tinker. Won't hurt it ...

I make Dragonscale because of the demand. I have people asking me to make things for them, when I show them the weaves I can do, I always get shafted into doing Dragonscale. It is a really pretty we ...

Yeah, that was horrible pricing! It may have taken a total of 20 mins to make each piece. Though, that is about 75$ an hour if the work actually sold *rubs chin*

I watch movies mostly. I got to the point where the Rogers people know my # off by heart so I don't even need to get out my card. Yup, a lot of movies.

Right now I'm using an 8-in-2 weave with 14ga 1/2" ID rings. I took a rough timing and I'm weaving 1 ring about every 36 seconds. This sounds horribly horribly slow to me. This time IS including th ...

Groovy, so I'm on the right track then. And Lore, I got my galvy wire at TSC, most if not all farming stores will have galvy for fencing.

Years ago when I actually bought my rings I got some galvy rings that I eventually dunked into some lemonjuice as the galvy smell is wretched. It made it plain steel....I think. Alas now I have 1/4 ...

I don't think they'll break. Mine don't. I've cut a bunch of 14ga rings with my snips and they're fine. You just gotta have the mus ...

In all honesty I CAN'T weave with left handed rings. I've tried, it's a no go. Of course I can't weave right handed right now either....Damned tendons getting buggered up. *sigh*
