not for sure where, but keyrings can be bought in bulk. several comapnies i have worked for in the past with large fleets would buy key blanks and keyrings in bulk. funny, but truck drivers tend to lose a lot of keys! might try maybe ebay or some of the industrial supply companies for them.

I did a quick search on the internet on my phone, look at ballchain.com, they might have the keyrings like you were talking about.

A co-worker got into making mail a few years back. He played with galvanized, stainless, brass and aluminum. The brass was really cool looking, but heavy. The aluminum made a nice costume piece.

He made a mandrel with a groove for a high speed cut off wheel. twisted the wire on and cut it on the mandrel. realliy sped up the process. He branched out to selling links on e-bay.

Thought about the mandrel groove and a dremel cut off, but tried it by hand and with the thin disc I had, it made too much dust with the galvanized steel. I decided I'd rather not breath in the zinc dust. So I went back to the mini bolt cutters.

I know that first sentence was butchered but I didn't feel like retyping it

It's ok, we try not to be grammar nazis, unless it just really, really, REALLY sucks. Punctuations and complete thoughts go long way, and it seems you've got that covered.
