« on: Jun 10, 10, 10:03:47 pm CDT »

ok i just started to learn to weave chain mail...but i have some issues getting a coif started correctly..i am using a E4 in 1 weave with 14g galvi steel... i have made a mandrell for making the coils but still haven't figured out how to cut them..pinch cut is ok but i like the smooth cut of a saw..short of buying a saw or buying them precut, does anyone have a good way to cut the links..in fact, if the chance presents itelf to get with someone who can show me hands on i will try and set it up...not sure who is close to DFW but post advice or let me know how i can get this resolved...
