  • The year you started making chainmail
    Spring of 2002
  1. finally got past mailler's block; friend comissioned a full outfit, for TRF in the fall.

  2. All flavors of steel. But then, my interest is mostly armour, so take that as you will. Spring Stainless for butted or welded, mild for flattened and riveted.

    Where did your get your avitar?

    Rather silly, slightly creepy pic a friend took of me at TRF a couple years back. I'd just talked to the smith on-site for about 3 hours, and he'd sold me that hat for a fraction, simply because I'd sat and jawed, and had been interested in what he was doing.

    And I wondered why this forum was dead

    *strolls in, looks around* Yep, this place is just as it was when I last dropped in. *wanders back out*

    science fair!!!

    Problem? Hypothesis? Conclusion? What about 'chainmaile' are you proving/disproving/testing? Knowing this may help provide info on the best way to go about presenting these facts.

    Graduated Squared Full Persian

    Rose, this is unreal! Its absolutely gorgeous! If ever there was a piece that really made me want to put down my armor and work on jewelry again, this would be one of the top three. Wonderful; bravo! I think it would be really cool if you could fuse the rings shut after you finished, to -really- confuse people on finding your closures...

    Score and Break Stainless Steel

    Steel rod on the inside, a sharp cold chisel, a hammer, and something to keep the coil from rolling? Second thought was of a modified english wheel, with two sharp-faced wheels inside and out, but can't figure out how that inside wheel would fit...

    legging armour

    Later versions had wrap plates that covered about 3/4 of the thigh, and wings on the poleyn eventually became larger. Course, around the 16th century, they had fully encased legs, with compression articulation covering the back of the knee... (see Henry VIII's foot combat armor)
