Re: Joining Anchor Chain

When I looked into joining links years ago I remember Cosby joiners were considered the best, can't remember why. I had no problems using two for years. I also had a link welded once, lived on the hook full time no problem.

Re: Joining Anchor Chain

About the only way to join the chain and retain the full strength is to cut the end of the links you want to join in an X pattern and weld them with low hydrogen welding rods. Cutting with an X pattern allows you to both link the chain and achieve a fully penetrated weld which will pass around the winch wildcat normally.
