"Maybe some heat from a propane torch (or the kitchen stove if you don't have access to a torch) then beat on it.  Or using files and wire brushes, you could  clean the original ring and laying it down on a  brick or some fire…"

"Bummer. The chains are okay. It's the ring that is rusted through. I guess I could drill out the center hole in a fender washer and drill three smaller ones to rivet the chains to. Beating it to cup it into the right shape may be a challenge."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame1@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
