    Starting a Chainmail with 14ga

    Yes! This would be for a chainmail armor project. Want to start it as a shirt, see where I can get it, then proceed to make it an hauberk when possible.

    Starting a Chainmail with 14ga

    Good day Everyone, I'm planning to start a chainmail project now (have the funds and the time!) and I wanted to know; I'm going 14ga, as I don't like the thin 16ga. So I know, euro 4-1, you want a relatively small ring. I was wondering if 14ga 5/16" would be adequate or not, or if I should go smaller/larger ring. If someone has pictures and examples of how it looks, I would be grateful.

    Suggestion for Gauge/Ring Size for Chainmail Hauberk in European 6 in 1

    I have to say, this is a good looking mail up in the post above. So, I've reviewed a few more things and with the suggestions above, I won't be doing 6 in 1 for the chainmail I plan on doing. I will be using 16ga, 1/4" rings in 4 in 1 style. I wanted to thank the people who answered. Glad I could get the help and I hope to post images once the project is done.

    Suggestion for Gauge/Ring Size for Chainmail Hauberk in European 6 in 1

    Alrighty, Thank you all for the help and the suggestion. Very much appreciated.
  5. Hello Everyone, I will be beginning my own personal project of making a Chainmail Hauberk on my spare time (So I can have one to wear for LARP next year). I was wondering what the ideal sizes would be for a Chainmail Hauberk in the 6 in 1 European Style. I plan to use Mild Steel or Galvanized Steel. Is there an idea size? I don't mind much for weight, I just want to make sure it looks protective and dense.
