Miscellaneous

Again, look in the fabric and chains pages for closeups of these weaves.

This is where all the stuff ends up that has no proper place for it.  This is my favorite section, as it has the most possibilities.

A friend of mine said, "Can you make a chainmail wallet?"  "I can try." 

Outside - European 6 in 1 - 1/4" ID

Inside - European 4 in 1 - 3/16" ID

Copper (18? 20? gauge  I don't know, really it was a gift from the owner.) and Brass (16 gauge) are wound through the opening for stiffness.

whip.jpg (29789 bytes)      

I made this after first making a section of European 6 in 1.  I said, "This would make a good whip handle."  It doesn't work that well, and flies apart.   I'm thinking of using a cold weld to join the rings.  Does anyone have any experience with cold welds?

This is with a 6" hoop.  I just realized the flat rings on the Oriental 6 in 1 on the top aren't doubled.  I get to fix that. :)  I'm going to replace the galvanized steel in the peace sign with stainless steel.  All of those rings are 1/4" ID.  peace, hippy.

There are two of these on that shoulder thing.             This is slightly larger than a quarter.

a cube

This is cool.  With this I could build a castle.

That would take quite a bit to do though.

Franz.jpg (8788 bytes)

this is Franz.  Hi Franz.  I think Franz might need a little explanation.  

He belongs to Pete.  I think playing with chain is more fun than wearing it.
