    How long does it take to make...

    If you check the topmost pattern, the flat laying rings are about 3/4 or smaller. Insert other media

    Making your own rings

    If your making jewerly .. in other words, small numbers of rings .. it's fine, once you learn how. If your planning on making a 1000 rings, forget it. Go for something scaled up.

    Contractions roadblock

    Sorry Skylar .. you went up and down .. the row that needs removed is 45 degrees down-right The right orange scale needs removed .. and all the ones down-right in that row. You're going to have to open that ring ..remove that scale .. and attach to the row above to the row below ...

    Contractions roadblock

    Ok .. in the next to last picture .. I think I see another problem. .. Start in the upper left .. and go down right .. following the rows.. They come to your contraction .. with the gold rings ... so far so good. They contract into 1 line and continue down-right .. If you check the row beneath that .. start in the corner and go down-right .. that row is nice and neat ... And here it comes ... if you follow the three rows .. .. they contract into 2 rows ..then 1 scale past the contraction .. theres a new row between the 2 again ... Sorry for using paint .. its all I have atm.

    Contractions roadblock

    Ok, I am by no means a master of scale .. but I can see a problem right off .. which would be an image issue. .. And me on a new puter with no editor .. sigh Ok .. the scale with 5 rings thro it .. top one links to 2 scales .. but they are misaligned. Bring the right one (last picture) behind the left one .. that may clear up some of the scatter effect.

Their spamming here?! Oh the joy of banning them! Can't do it in game or on FB, but despawned them here! Weird start to the day.

    First timer here, have I been making my mail wrong?

    1st off .. Greetings and well met. Always happy to help. It looks like your doing your weave "the wrong way" which is to say it hangs open, all the rings dangling, it's fine, it's just called that. But expansion and contraction in that form is going to be a bit more problematic. To do a expansion in the "right way" .. hang a single ring off the right side ( in your picture ) then add all the rings as normal .. meaning that in 1 place you have an extra ring now and continue mailing as normal. This will provide the expansion you need. There's no way I know to do it in the "wrong way" .. which is why they call it that. So basically your looking at a vertical expansion/contraction instead of a horizontal. Now this CAN be made to work .. making it small and expanding sideways to fit. Good luck!.. Oh .. and here in the post screen .. there's a little picture ,right and under, size, click that to add http location of your pic to mount it in message. I hope that was clear enough
  13. Scales are metal .. anodized yup .. but still metal. I have ordered and used some and didn't see more than the odd scale with a flaw .. now that said once you put them into a piece, well, they are metal .. rubbing against metal, so ya flaws develop. You got gavy, but you might want to try finishing a small piece in a harder metal, like stainless. To secure the rings the ringlord recommends doubled stainless spring steel .. think keychain connector, 20ga <thin> but doubled .. open the gap slide the scale in .. round and round and its in. do that again and you got 2 scales connected .. you will be doing this 4 times for each scale in a pattern. Then securing it to your leather.

    Sonic Cleaners... opinions?

    For scale, pickle and ultrasonic For shine dawn water and ultrasonic .. keep your brush for clearing bonded scales, instead of scratching your work.

Oh and avoid Taco Bell, I dunno what the hell they do, but it seems they boil the meat up there and forget the spices, shudder.

    New to Scale Maille - thoughts on design

    Welcome welcome! Oh your a nut .. gonna fit right in here I would hazard the guess that ya, that's gonna be too big for a chest piece, depending on your size I would say 1/2 to 3/4 of it would fit on the chest .. back would gain you a couple inches but still large. Now on the other hand a cape with that would just be off the charts incrediable .. nice inlay btw. And ya, its gonna be heavy .. how heavy? .. I will tell you exactly .. go to your order on the main page , and see how much the componets weigh. It's gonna weigh that much or more. You still have to decide where you want it, are you willing to have the wings curve up on the shoulders <reducing the top area> or would you want it all free hanging, which means it's gonna be a touch wider than the shoulders --my est-- ..then you will have to do the front for a closure <more!> In any case .. 2 things pop into my mind .. 1 that's gonna be a wicked piece .. overlayed on a cape .. or the upper part of the cape. 2 I want to see the finished Cheers

    dog armor project

    http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=95&cat=Sheets+of+Chainmail There quite a bit here
  19. There are stories that those that wore combat armor weighing 90 lbs and tumbling, rolling, even doing flips as training. Chain or plate or combos of both. You choose butted combat rated rings, so ya .. 50 lbs doesn't sound out of line. Now looking at that picture I see maybe 16 or even 18 gauge welded rings 3/8ths maybe. That would cut the weight in half, but you have to weld the rings to make combat worthy .. butted just won't hold up to real world combat unless its thick! Looks like you got some choices to make .. heavy or costume or welding. In either case .. I wish you luck! and steady hands One thing I believe you missed tho .. check the belting etc on that thing .. the full weight is NOT on the shoulders .. its spread across the complete shoulder .. and on the arm a little .. the beltline also carrys some of the weight and keeps its off the upper part .. it will weight heavily, but not all in 1 place.
  20. Spam spam spam spam spam ... Apparently some over achieving spaminator has a new series of IP addresses and ho boy are the bots on the loose! I cleared 6 topics and watched 12 more spawn as I did it! This is the 3rd day .. so those of you who have seen these "things" posting .. sorry, I hammer them as fast as I can!

    ring cutter motors

    Harbor freight has them for $10-20 .. goes to find one .. http://www.harborfreight.com/router-speed-control-43060.html $19.99. I also bought a 1/3hp GP motor from Grainger for $79 .. but that was a few years ago 6000 rpm and use pulleys to set my blade RPM/TPM speeds.

    Tin Solder and Scales

    I am not 100% sure .. but I don't think such a low heat solder will bond. Saw cut stainless is the best and cheapest option. If you really want to bond them tho, silver solder is the best way to go.
