Repairing Broken Links in Heavy Chain

Everyone who's ever worked extensively with heavy chain knows this method of replacing a broken link, but the idea is still a very good one. Cut two pieces of sturdy flatiron the length of an ordinary link, drill holes in each end of both pieces, and join the broken chain with the chunks of strap iron and two short bolts. Do not draw the bolts down tightly enough to grip the chain but do rivet the nuts on so that they can't work off.
