Don't see my 35lb CQR or 10mm chain?

Its there. I was in a bit of a rush getting that list out to a request. I'm not there tomorrow, but will add your anchor and chain status on Wed.
From vague memory (at home) was yours the CQR with a hole in the shank?


Geoff

Relief! Yes. My CQR had a hole in the shank. I'm not in any hurry with my stuff so just crack on and I can liaise to pick mine up when it's ready. Well, before April at any rate.

erm . . .

Mine was 35m of chain, not 25m . . . I assume that was a typo?


Seems like best way to check is to mistype the length or size and wait for the squeal!
Yes, typo. I have it listed as 35m of 8mm, arrived in a decrepit plastic box. It's been further identified by a small wire on the third link from one end. Its still in the queue!

Will push this stuff up the priorities now, the queue is down to only 60 tonnes!

Have taken delivery of my chain- what a difference!
There are a few welded links but I'm sure a few taps with a block of wood will sort that.
Thanks again, Geoff :)

Nah - no need for all that effort - just set it one a windy night and let it drag itself clean :nod:

May I recommend wearing gloves for the first couple of anchorings. There can be some zinc stalactites/mites, soft enough to wear off but a bit hard on the hands until they do.

Hi Geoff,

I am just back from a month away and was wondering of the chain galvanising offer has been missed. I understand that the factory was planning to do this all as batch, so if I have missed the boat, so be it.

Please advise,

Alastair.
The last of these will be finished by end of next week, so not too late if you can get stuff in this week.

It is a "batch" in terms of order size, but actual processing is spaced out over time, allowing flexibility of priority (hence low price).
It would have all been done by now if we hadn't got so busy in January - and still pretty busy. (but that's a good problem to have!)

If you bring in your chain, tell the goods in guys its part of that batch of chains and anchors, and they will add to the pile. And let me know what to search for so I can add some identification marks.

Any word on payment methods yet please, Geoff?
As you've kindly listed my chain as having been done I'm probably going to call by and pick it up later this week but feel guilty about doing so without having paid.

Dropped off the chain at the facility. There are about 4 or 5 chains and a couple of anchors still to be done and two chains and 2 anchors iirc that had been done. They looked good.

I am in know rush for mine at all. I'll be back at work for most of March, home last week.

Several chains and all anchors wending their way into the process this morning. I'll advise when some more stuff ready.

Payment method: In the Members only section.

Update
There's some more chains and a few anchors done, but I'll do a fuller update on Monday.

Objective is to have all completed before end of next week, (ie by Friday 12th)

Yes, it has been reminiscent of herding cats!
