Re: Chainplates

i know this is an older thread but people may still be researching doing their own chainplates. i replaced all 8 of mine on my Alberg 30 this winter. i used 316ss and made them out of larger stock than factory units. Total cost was $80.00. that price included all the material. i was able to make all 8 from a 6ft piece of 1.5"x6'ft piece. obviously it would have cost more if i had someone else do it but i enjoyed the experience. i only polished mine...no plating. the factory 304 units lasted 40yrs so i figure my new much thicker and wider units should last me quite a while!
