Hi,
Will a solid week be enough time to make a 30-lb hauberk? I'm thinking, specifically, of spring break Smile

Secondly, is 4-in-1 really the best and only choice for armor of that scale, or a ...

Hi,

Thanks for the input! If on the other side, = same price/little better, then I'll probably just order from the ringlord, unless there's another online alternative.

I live in a city now ...

Hi,

I was wondering if the ring lord is the best value for wire, specifically, probably stainless steel is what I'll be using. I'm just stingy and cynical this way, I like to cross-check lot ...

Hi,
When do you weld chain maille?

More specifically, can I knit my entire shirt, and only thereafter MIG weld each of the individual rings?


I have access to a MIG welder, but rather ...

Hi,
I have searched the ring lord's site and am considering ordering from him. But before I do, it is always a good idea to shop around and compare prices. Is TRL necessarily the best value for g ...

Lol... Ok, I think I'll stick to Ti for a while Smile Thanks for the link, it looks interesting! Perhaps I'll give it a try when I have the time and the money for the setup, but it's too much just now ...

Lol, this seems too easy!

Slightly off topic: since you mention heating titanium in the oven to change its colour, I had tried heating a purpleheart bandsawn box in the oven at 400 degrees. After ...

Hi,
I'm interested in learning to annodize my own wire. Whether it makes sense economically or time-wise or not, I'd like to learn just for the fun and knowledge of it.
First, what exactly is a ...

Ok, I'll stick to round ones for now. To get the rings off, what if you greased the mandrel before turning the coils? Or, after the coil is turned, to get it off, would a vice work? Make the dis ...

Ok, thanks! I'll try that. I still have to decide if I want to make my own riveted rings or not, whether or not it takes so long as to justify simply buying pre-riveted rings.
