    My Jolly Roger is Completed

    After a little more than 2 year I have finally finished my Jolly Roger. Now I need to have a frame made for it so I can mount it on the back of my Trackchair for the St.Louis Renaissance Festival. The official ring count is 15,395 16g 1/4" rings.

    Thanks guys. I'm trying to plan my next inlay now. I'm thinking about trying to do the insignias of all of our branches of the military.

    Update on my Jolly Roger

    Here is an update on the chainmaille Jolly Roger that I've been working on for 2 years now. I think I will have it finished in a few days and then have to find someone to make a fram for it to be mounted on my Trackchair.

    Update on my Jolly Roger

    Just changed the photo of my Jolly Roger for an update. I hate the size restrictions.

    Update on my Jolly Roger

    Not sure, I will have to count them and find out. LOL, my wife asked me last night how many more rings I'm going to need and I couldn't tell her.
  7. Well Chainmaille friends. Here is my progress sofar on the Jolly Roger flag that I plan to have hanging on the back of my Action Trackchair when I goto the St.Louis Renaissance Faire this year. I'm using 16 gauge 1/4" anodized aluminum rings for this project. I can hardly wait to get it finished and start on my American Flag.

    My first attempt at an inlay project

    Thank You. I've been very busy working on things we plan to sell at our Farmers market this year. I can never seem to order enough rings for anything, much less my inlay.

    My first attempt at an inlay project

    Here is my latest update on my Jolly Roger. I just ran out of black rings so I will have to wait until atleast next month to get more but it is slowly coming along. I'm already trying to plan my next inlay.

    My first attempt at an inlay project

    Well, here's my last update until next month when I get more rings to work with. It's finally starting to take shape and I hope the picture looks right. TRL keeps cutting down the size of the file I can upload.

    It won't be long and I will be posting another update, probably this evening or tomorrow.

    Here's the latest update. It's coming along slowly. I finally got to get started on the cross bones.

    My first attempt at an inlay project

    As soon as I'm able to get back to work on it I plan to post regular updates on it. I'm not good at computing the number of rings. When it comes to math, that's my weak point.

    My first attempt at an inlay project

    I started out by just looking at a picture that I found online and then someone told me about a program called IGP. That program turns your picture into a chainmaille pattern that if you want to you can print out to use as a guide. I'm still learning the program but having a lot of fun with it.

    Sounds good to me.

    Making rings vs buying rings

    where did you find the thick white plastic and the guard you put over the blade. I'm really tempted to try to copy what you've made.

    Making rings vs buying rings

    WOW, I really like that setup. It looks like you can really crank out some rings with it quick. I doubt it but did you do a video of the assembly of the cutter?

    SELLING Mandrels

    Yes I am however I will not have the money until next month and can buy them from you then. I was afraid they would already be gone by now.

    Making your own rings

    Has anyone ever used the Pepetools Jump Ring Maker? I'm considering purchasing one and want to see what people think about it good or bad.

    Making your own rings

    I'm planning on doing both. I watched their videos on youtube and had heard they were really good. I am planning on mainly using aluminum rings. Have you heard of any other machines that are larger and yet still have the same safe guards as this machine? I'll admit only being able to make 3" coils at a time will take a long time to get a lot of rings made.

    Links to Free Instructions

    Thank YOU very much for posting this topic. I am constantly searching for tutorials and instructions on different weaves and how to do things and this helps immensely. I P.S. I have also purchased some of the instruction PDFs that you guys sell and they are excellent.

    SELLING Mandrels

    I know you posted this almost a year ago, but do you still have these mandrels or were you able to sell them?

    electric fence wire

    Thank You for your comment. I was getting ready to ask about using the AL fence wire for making rings and you not only hit on that but even the place I was planning to buy it from. These forums are awesome.

    Police in Chainmail

    WOW, that's pretty cool. Thanks for posting it, I've never seen that before. Any idea when they started wearing chainmaille? I was over there from 85 till 88.

    Making rings vs buying rings

    Nice setup. Have you also set something up to do saw cut rings? I am considering buying a machine that coils the wire and also saw cuts them but it only makes about 3" long coils.
