Where to buy chain for nunchucks etc.

Postby lam47 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 1:32 pm

Hey all. I would like to know where I can get hold of some chain to make nunchucks for turtles?
I'm in the UK and am not sure where to look for small enough chain.
Thanks.

Go to your local thrift shop and look through there jewelry until you find some chain the right size.
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

I'm not sure about other people but that's what I use :)

Yeah, I normally use the wifes old jewellery but some places do have real thin chains, try hobbycraft or modelling shops or like Pock said, check out charity shops.

You can also get some keychains. They have small chains in them too. Sometimes I use those in the absence of the ones mentioned by the nice gentlemen above :).

Yep, like the others have said, cheap jewelry is probably your best bet. You can also fabricate your own chains by cutting and bending wire into the individual links, but it's a VERY time consuming and monotonous process.
