I had to replace my chain on the weekend and I was wondering what I could use the old chain for.
After a bit of contemplation I broke the chain down into its individual components, added some leather lacing and clips I was going to use for some paracord bracelets and came up with the following.
Having made these has anyone got some unwanted used chains?
My son actually bought a chainmail shirt made with aluminium rings and it weighed several kilos - I'd hate to wear one made of steel as it would weigh a ton
At the Sunbury Rock Festival (where we went for our honeymoon - 1974) there was a bloke wearing a vest made out of the ring-pull tops (remember those?) from drink tins.
Did you see Queen and boo them off the stage?
It was Sunbury, I suspect he can't remember.
protection from the magpies Gus?
My neighbour recycles my old chains for a pulley system.
make chain whips
That is bloody cool!
Nice bracelet .
It has good sentimental value too , because it has provided you with many good times .
