Square stainless.

Someone here had posted some nice square stainless used in JPL. I think it was Gawthfrawg, but I'm at a loss to find the thread.

I was hoping someone could let me in on what size I need to order for a nice square JPL.

I found it by using the nifty search feature in the main menu at the top. Searched for square JPL.

Not quite. I have seen that one, and I think it predates the thread I was looking for. My problem is I'm awful when comes to using the AR to figure things out as it is a new concept for me before I found all you folks online. I guess I'm more of an impulse weaver. I take what I have an just make whatever comes to mind within the limits of the supplies, instead of making rings to a specific size to meet the need of an existing design, or plan.

I was hoping someone had used TRL rings specifically as I have a large order going in next week, and I wanted to add the square rings to my options, even if I can only make a couple of nice weaves to begin with.

I'm working on a JPL in 1.22mm stainless steel square right now using rings from C&T. It's working out nicely- maybe just a little looser than I'd normally go, but the square rings may need the extra room for the chain to stay flexible. It does still stay JPL without ever slipping into a 4in1 spiral.

Anyway, 1.22mm square wire, 4.2mm actual id, AR=3.44

Thanks Talia. That really give me a place to start. Looks like an 18g swg 5/32, or 11/64 may work well. Maybe even a 16 g 7/32.

I think that's the one you want - its at the bottom of the list of photos.

I ordered half a pound of the rings for $10.75 I don't think I got any discounts because my total with shipping wasn't over $100 on that order.

I could probably do at least 4 - 15in chains out of it if not more.

their product code for the size i used is: wire flat - SS-SQ18-532

These are from TRL.

Isn't it like Christmas when you get exactly what you want? Thanks so much. That's what I really needed to know. I would court you relentlessly if not for our mutual spouses, and the fact that Legba already has dibs on being my long distance mistress.
