  1. yea, you should contact TRL customer service.
  2. This can kinda depend on how you hold the pliers in the first place, hold the pliers so that they are aimed at one another should help. You could also cut part of the jaws off so that you hold the ring closer to the pivot point of the pliers.
  3. 16 1/4. would be my guess. as i think 16 1/4 is that tight
  4. I would suggest getting a kit from TRL, they have a PDF that comes along with it. http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=90&cat=Chainmail+Armor+Kits you will also need some nice pliers I suggest KX-ArmorPlier http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=69&cat=Pliers enjoy
  5. Do Not Weld Galvanized Rings. Toxic fumes would be made, so just not a good thing to do. you could build a welder from a microwave, but you do need a timer in there for the weld on time. I would not do mig welding on chainmail. TRL does sell a resistance welder that does a good job, I have used it before. I believe they have videos on their youtube channel using said welder.
  6. http://www.mailletec.com/content/nova-shield-gloves website worked fine for me. theres the link to the gloves.
  7. If you get the Non-anodized Brushed you should be good. I state the non-anodized because there is a anodized one and they are difficult to tell apart without using an Ohm meter
  8. It wipes off nicely, a little wd-40 will make it shine a little too.

  15. Yea theres a little art to it. Heres a picture of rings I was welding this week. they are 16 5/16 and I was going to superman strong rings, I was using setting d29 (little high, but needed for what was needed of the ring) and I was using 3 tap welds. once you start using a triple tap welds the you can melt away the closure of the ring if your timing is off. in this picture first ring was a one tap weld, the second rings was double tap and the third was triple. as you can see the ring superman strong with that weld setting and taps. also i was squeezing the ring after the 3rd weld, not a lot its just the ring pushes out around the closure a little so while its still red and hot i squeeze the closure. if you look at your picture rob you can see what i mean, that little metal that is sticking out all around the closure i just squeeze that all flat, just kinda close the pliers on it. I do this as those bits a sharp. (may not be explaining that right, let me know) and heres some pictures before and after tumbling using setting d29 and doing triple tap welding. the welds look ugly but are strong
