    started a topic build heavy chain

    build heavy chain

    Start out with some 3/4 round rod cut about 3' pieces, then make a template from plate thats at least as thick as the rod. Tack the plate to work table. Tack one end of the rod to the template as shown. Heat and bend. Leave enough gap or bevel for 100% penetration. Weld with 7018 or mig

    Big Chain...

    We don't make the chain but we make the machines that handle the chain (in yellow) for the offshore market.

    I was just looking at a chain company web site. They make big anchor chains & such. They said the longest chain they had made to date was 2.2 kilometers long. Their catalog listed chains with links up to 7 inches in diameter.

    No your right.... its just HEAVY! Im sure its not gona break jus hangin there. I tried a few different ways before i did it this way and found that this was the fastest and easiest. To make a whole link u gota leave one side open for the next link.. then it doesnt go back on the template so it doesnt stay uniformed.

    I am not a chain expert but I think you are missing the point of the middle piece, and monte55 is correct but you need to figure out how. Your chain is NOT safe like that and by no means "HEAVY" duty.

    Why not make the link in one piece, then put the middle piece in.
    Because you have to put it together.....
