Chain Finishing


#1

First - you can brighten a chain almost any way.

Another tip, straight out of an Alan Revere video, never occurred to
me before that- prepolish the coiled wire before cutting the links
apart. I had one of those "why didn’t I ever think of that…"
moments. Doesn’t eliminate the need for final finishing, but
dramatically reduces the amount of work and time.

Yeah, that’s a good one. I’ve been doing that for years, and if you
then - when you have polished the coil and cut the links/jump rings -
thread them all on a piece of wire and tumble them in a rotary
tumbler with a mix of stainless steel shots, you have come even
closer to a nice finish
