Got mine today too. Got here alot faster than I thought comming all the way from FL.

 

Unfortunatley, not everything made it in one piece. Aparently the post office got a little rough with the package and there was some damage inflicted... upon the sand bags :P . I found the box stuffed inside a couple plastic trash bags on the front porch, appearantly the postal service did not like that lovely sand getting all over their nice trucks :lol: . I'm sure they will have put your name and everyone who ordered from you on their blacklist ;) .

 

Anyway, links look great, cant wait to cut some up and try it out.

 

Thanks Jesse :D

fibrous pics suck , maybe some else will post better pics, while forging i was wondering how old could this chain be?? any body got any ideas??

just cut mine into manageable chunks. the links are too big to fit in my forge width wise. so i cut one of the links into 1/2 rounds. really great stuff. cant wait to forge it tomorrow.

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Got mine yesterday. :)

 

These things are BEASTS Jesse! haha

 

I died laughing when I saw the box they came in, almost a complete crumbled up perfect round sphere by the time it arrived. I feel bad for the delivery guys who had to carry it.

 

 

I wanted to ask... How old are these chains??? any estimations if you don't know???

My best guess is somewhere in the 1800s, but I don't really know.

 

The remaining boxes are packed up and will ship tomorrow. I tried to ship them today, but I guess the post office here in Woodville closes at 11:30 on mondays and wednsdays :rolleyes:

 

Thanks, everybody, and there's more where that came from!

Rósta að, maðr!
