    Default 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

    Why not make the link in one piece, then put the middle piece in.

    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.

    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.
