Peter's Chainmail setup

Here is a chainmail making setup made by Pete. It looks great and he is spinning out rings and making chainmail! All you need is a basic setup like this and you are on your way to protection against slashing blades!!

My thanks go to Peter for sharing these pics with us and if you want to make chainmail the tutorial on making this setup, with a video, is here: How to make chainmail

He tells us a bit about what he has here:

This is the rig that I had set up, almost exactly like your own, to make the rings to make chain-mail as you can see below. I plan on making a full suit of chainmail armour, I am also using 14 gage steel fencing wire and my links are 10mm in diameter, if I remember right the guy at the store said 9.5mm is equal to 3/8inch and this was the closest steel rod they had.
