The year you started making chainmail

  1. I know already hands down that Hand made coils are the smartest way to go. Yet since I live in an apt and dont have all the tools nor money to buy what I need, such as a drill. I wanted to ask if anyone has bought the Uncut coils from TRL. They run for about $2.49 per lb. How long of a coil/how many rings would I get out of a lb. Would it be cheaper/smarter to just save up and buy the tools I need? Or should I just buy a bunch of Pre cut? Advice is helpful.
  2. Greetings. Some months ago I acquired a cutting system that can work without modifications, but not to spec. I needed a better lubricant than soap and water, since many of the parts will rust if left wet, but cannot pump thread-cutting oil with the supplied equipment. I need a relatively inexpensive solution which is either purpose-built for pumping thin oil or is capable of same. I do not need a lot of flow out of this device; only enough to keep the reservoir full as the device cuts. Just a couple of gallons per minute should suffice. I should think that a low-capacity oil pump would be relatively easy to come by in our advanced civilization. Thoughts?

    Silver Ring Prices

    I've noticed that the prices for fine and sterling silver rings do not change very often here on TRL. Meanwhile, the world price for silver varies quite a bit. While this is sometimes great for customers (like when the price of silver went way up, TRL prices were still reasonable), it is discouraging when the global price of silver falls. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I would like the prices of silver rings to follow global price trends more closely (maybe update once a week). But if it's a lot of work to update all the prices, I can understand not doing so very often.
  4. Hi! I was wondering if there were any plans to make silvered AA for aluminum scales and 14ga rings? I really really love the silvered AA, and I wish scales came in it, and that rings bigger than 16ga had silvered colors too... (Yes, I know that there are silvered rings for 14ga 15/16", but I'd like to work with bigger 14ga rings like 7/16"...) Anyway, I would like to know so I can either get the non-silvered stuff for some projects I want to do, or hold out for silvered. Thanks!
  5. Hello, I would like to make a 6 inch by 6 inch swath of 6 in 1 european chainmail. I am interested in the stainless steel punched rings that are 16g Wire diam. 0.062" 1.6mm 3/8"ID I see that the bag contains 300 rings. Would that be enough to make a 6 inch by 6 inch swath? Also, I am interested in the small stainless steel scales and like the chainmail, I would like to make a 6 inch by 6 inch swath. How many scales would I need for that and is it possible to rivet the rings with the scalemail? My last question is what size of rivets would I need to make riveted chainmail/scale mail? I am doing this for college in a "how to speech" so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your time!
  6. I'm looking into making a chainmail suit with long sleeves that I would like to attach some kind of gauntlet to. I'll most likely use the basic 4to1 pattern and I want to know if it is possible to attach a sheet of 16g 5/16" to 16g 1/4" or 18g 3/16" Rings for aesthetic purposes. I'd also like to make sure the 16g 1/4" or 18g 3/16" would be suitable for use with the small scales available on TRL. Thanks you your help!
