GENERAL INFORMATION 
 The inside length (grip or pitch) of one link is 4 wire diameters.
 The outside length of one link is 6 wire diameters.
 The outside width of one link is 3.56 wire diameters.
 The gaugetest length is the outside length over 6 links and equals 26 wire diameters.
 The weight of one links is about 31/3 times its wire diameter cubed.
 Doubling the wire diameter of one link multiplies its weight by 8.
 The weight of 1 linear foot of chain is 10 times its wire diameter squared.
 The length of a standard "shot" = 15 fathoms = 90ft.= 1080".
 The weight of a 90ft. shot = 900 times its wire diameter squared.
 Doubling the wire diameter of a 90ft. shot multiplies its weight by 4.
 Doubling the size of chain theoretically multiplies its strength by 4, in practice, by a trifle less than 4.
 The safe working load of chain is ordinarily assumed as one half the proof test.
