  • Chain lengths

    If anyone with a basket could spare a couple minutes to measure their chains I would appreciate it. Both inner and outer lengths, and intermediate if applicable. I will be shopping for supplies today and need to estimate the cost for chains and such. I forgot to take a tape measure to Pier yesterday...

          If you guys go to the pDGA site to the tecnical standards section you will find all the guidelines for basket design. Burried in the TD section of the sanctioning agreement

            It is actually on page 6 of 8 on the specs PDF. Has all the measurements EXCEPT for chain length. Thanks for the reply though...

            I am looking for the lengths since the chain is going to be the most expensive part of the basket. I would rather not have it be a trial by error type of thing.

            Also, does anyone have a pipe bender laying around collecting dust I could borrow?

              The ring roller and stock bender can be found reasonably $ at either Harbour Freight or on ebay for about $50 together.

                I bought 3", 5", and 7" rings at Michaels. The cheapest bender at Home Depot was about $32. I could rent one but thought I'd see if someone had one I could borrow. I still don't know if I'm gonna go with some cold rolled steel or 1/2" conduit

                The galvanized chain felt pretty rough. I'm afraid it might chew up discs a bit. I'm gonna go with the zinc plated. The stainless steel was nice but pretty damn spendy.
