If you make the Chain maille and hate that huge contraption and just want a portable option then look no further than here.
NOTE: This is for chain links that you want very small and for a tight weave!!!!!
This is my second instructable so feel free to comment about how well i did or if i didnt do a good job so i can improve if needed.
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED!!!!
Ok all you need is
a peice of copper pipe(i prefer the L shape or T shape fitting it makes it last longer)
Like those long and pretty thick nails it must be almost unbendable using bare hands
OR instead of a Nail you can substitute a metal rod your call
A hack saw or some thing that can take the head off the nail. you can also use big bolt cutters
A hitting surface i have a anvil so im set.
