Square Section Rings

We always have quantities of square section commercial spring washers in stock. These are commonly used to construct chainmail and ringmail garments and patches.

We also carry stocks of the above washers that have been electro plated or chemically treated to produce other finishes.

Note that some metals are irritants, therefore it is strongly recommended that metal armour is not worn against the skin.

Round Section Rings

The Armchair Armoury produces all of its mandrel-wound round section rings in its workshop. The rings are wound with the ends slightly overlapped so that a tight butted join is achieved after they have been assembled. Stock sizes are 6mm, 8mm and 10mm.  Other sizes from 5mm to 15mm may be made on request, so long as the required quantities make a viable economic proposition.

All of the Steel rings are suitable for full contact re-enactment garments, or for items that need to be tough and durable. Brass and Phosphor-Bronze should be used for decoration only and not in large patches that will be exposed to combat or similar stress. Aluminium is only suitable for LARP, Stage/Film, Show armour, Children’s garments and other light weight uses. It should never be used in combat.

By the use of different rings and materials, attractive pictures and designs can be created.
