Having been a fabricator and artist for many years now, the most annoying thing about working with chain is the zinc or galvanized coating. The stuff interferes with the weld terribly and makes a blackened, charred mess that you have to brush off or just cover up in some way. I have even burned chain in a fire-pit to try and get the coating off. Sometimes I used a torch. None of those ways are good. When I found this slick chain, clean steel, I was delighted. Now welding is a snap. Hardly any cleanup like before. Perfect for sculpture, found art, junkyard art, sign making, mail box, etc. Go wild with it! I can even see motorcycle accessories if I think about it long enough.
- .. Note this chain is not zinc or galvanized coated making it very easy to weld. This is perfect for sculpture, artworks, making letters or names.
