That is a sobering observation. However, does your friend have experience using his hydraulic shear on stainless steel of that gauge? I'm wondering if this may be a property of the massive stainless.

Flip side of this is whether we have examples of apparently flawless PSC chainplates failing as a result of suspected change in metallergy?
