    rockin the home made BA

    I coil and cut my own BA, though i do order the spools of wire from TRL because i haven't found a cheaper place locally to buy it. They come out really good. Only problem i have is that my saw cutting rig has some wobble to the blade so the openings are a bit inconsistent, but that issue will be fixed as soon as i can build a new rig.

    Help with planning super easy project

    My suggestion would be to download IGP from http://www.zlosk.com/pgmg/igp/downloads.html and start using that application to create your weave. Using IGP you can create your entire inlay design, see roughly how it will look in when in 4-1 chain mail pattern and it will even tell you how many of each color of rings to use.

    Elf sheet bracelet

    I created two identical Elf Weave bracelets then used the instructions found at maille artisans (link below) to connect the two to make an elfsheet. http://www.mailleartisans.org/articles/articledisplay.php?oldkey=9028

    Elf sheet bracelet with rubber rings?

    Yes, that is the method i used. It was very easy.
  9. I am curious if anyone has attempted to make a clasp less bracelet of elf sheet that uses rubber rings so it can stretch? Looking at the weave I cannot see an easy way to do this. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

    Elf sheet bracelet with rubber rings?

    Ok i got my rings and some time to finally post. It turned out perfect, though it is winter so the bracelet gets really cold sometimes. Here is the link to a picture of it. http://www.theringlord.org/forum/index.php?/gallery/image/5367-elf-sheet-bracelet/ thank you very much for the help.

    Elf sheet bracelet with rubber rings?

    This is exactly what i am wondering, by the look of the weave, i cannot easily see how it could be done and remain stretchy.

    on matters of bothe scale and elven design

    This may not be quiet as dense of a weave as a E6-1 or E 8-1 weave but this link contains a PDF that has a moderately dense weave that so far seems pretty sturdy to me. I haven't made a full hauberk yet but so far it moves well even though it is a tighter weave. https://sites.google.com/site/thehappybarbarianhordelands/scale-tutorial Found the link on the main TRL page for scales.
  15. I am thinking about starting a Scale Mail shirt for a costume for myself. There is however one major road block, i have a nickel allergy. So my question. Is Bright aluminum strong enough for the sizes of wire needed to hold together the scales without opening under the weight of the shirt itself? Would anodized aluminum perform better as i understand the anodizing process makes the wire stronger? Or do i simply need to use Niobium or Titanium jump rings?

    Rings for scale mail w/nickel allergy

    My allergy is a nickel allergy, I have been tested. I have had the allergy my entire life and have never had a problem with surgical steel.

    Rings for scale mail w/nickel allergy

    Thank you very much for your input.

    Rings for scale mail w/nickel allergy

    I will be using the large anodized aluminum scales for most of the project and small scales in a few locations. Galvanized steel, along with any non surgical grade stainless steel aren't really options for me. Looking at The Ring Lords selection for Titanium is listed as a Grade 5 alloy Ti-AL6-V4, seems to me that would be the Ti6-4 that you referenced. Thank you for the help. xD
