Nah! A magician.

I've seen 'em do it with big steel rings. It's what they do at the weekends. During the week they all work with chain galvanisers.

Hot Dip

Thair used to be a hot dip galv works at Cowes a few years ago the chain
would be dipped in the pickel tank first to clean it then lowered into the
galv tank on a hoist
on removal it would be taped to remove the dross
the hot dip always seamed to last a lot longer than the crap that most
chandlers sell lately
