After having approved this last night, I now realize that it isn't actually chainmail. It is made of ladder sprocket chain. While it is very interesting...
Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not I should delete it?

Well, it is somewhat maille related, so it should imho find a place in our library, even if not being maille per se. So I would move it into the 'catchall' category 'MISCELLANEOUS', and be well with, without much discussion.

You or me?

A single link will be worth nothing.
A chain is of use, but will break at the weakest link.
A weak weave will have the need to replace weak links.
A strong weave will survive even with weak links included.

I think it's fine being in the gallery. I've seen a video about this stuff, it's somewhat interesting but a PITA and slow to make.

Yeah, if it was constructed with the usual maille methods, it would go in the 'nonstandard rings' category.

Well, I lasted 56 seconds before the obnoxious voiceovers made it turn it off.

it's actually pretty cool stuff from what i can tell by the images.. many of the patterns are related to japanese, in that they use traditional tesselations, but have unique ring interactions. one i can loosely relate to trinity. one loosely e4.

i'm going to suggest that he submit some of these images to the weave library so that they can be discussed. i would say these are pretty good examples of NSR weaves.

After reviewing the video for a second time (Phong: There's a 'mute' button)Very Happy I agree with Kim. It is undeniably maille, as mailleing techniques are used, and it's repeated interconnection of similar links to create chains and meshes - using nonstandard 'rings'. And it's taking advantage from geometric properties of these links for sculptural work, as these links have limited 'degrees of freedom' when interacting, and bending meshes made from. Principally it's somewhat a 'white spot on the maille map' to be discovered.

I want to see more - Gallery, but also weave and article submissions for that.
