    Help with kingsmaille inlay

    I am doing an inlay using kingsmaille in 17g 1/4". The inlay parts are 16g 1/4". The AR does not work to do the kingsmaille weave in 16g1/4". So, I simply did the inlay portions in euro4 in1. The problem I am running into is the inlay portions are now very loose and sag when the piece is lifted as if it was going to be hung. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to accommodate for the looser weave. If at all possible I would prefer not to use any different rings because I have already met my materials budget. Thanks in advance!

    I put steel rings behind the green rings on every other row to reinforce the larger AR of the Anadoized Aluminum. You cannot do true kingsmaille with 16g 1/4"... I learned that after purchasing the 16g rings...

    Finally! It is done! Working the back of every other row in the green portions helped with the looseness. The hangers are captive inverted.

    I have now finished the frame, but the green portions are still loose even when stretched. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Ok it was my first attempt at "framing" maille. Its 17 gauge aluminum at 1/4" The tops and bottoms are framed with 3/8" wooden dowell and the sides 1/4" wooden dowells. Looking back on it I believe I should have not gone with the traditional side to side ring laying rather done up and down so it would not need the side framing. E 4 in 1.
