That 1/2" chain makes me tired just looking at it .I've got a few 1/2" myself and they are heavy .I drag them around if I use them . Partly because they are heavy plus the fact you can't push a chain .

I like that idea, I remember seeing a mailbox post built out of chain.

. My old mail box post is a great big chain welded together. My papaw built it and put one of them big metal mailboxes on it. A couple years ago we had to put a wood post and new mailbox up next to it because over the years as our road was repaved and the way the old one sit it was to low for the mailman to reach.

In the state of maine that mail box chain post would be illegal.  Nothing bigger or stronger than a 4x4 wood post. I know someone that hit a mailbox at over a 100 mph on a motorcycle. The 4x4 broke and  so did he

I looked the chain over... No flat spots or numbers... Guess it's just cheap chain.

I have some 1/2" load binding chain from the hold of a C-5, there isn't anything stamped on the chain. There was a small sheet metal plate hooked to a ring but its gone now and the bent grab hook is part of the chain.

Yup, cargo chain!

Stress rated to 10,000 pounds, according to the tag, but they'll do a lot more than 10,000 pounds!

I have a couple of them!

They only have a hook on one end!

We put the two tail-ends together and bolted them with a grade 8 bolt a few years ago and put it to a stress test a few years ago, pulling a cement delivery truck out of the mud, and the 75 hp tractor with all it had did not snap the chain, and eventually freed the truck!

The bent hook is really nice, when you hook them, they stay hooked!

Sounds like a 10k working load vs break strength. The real question is, is it a 4:1, 5:1  or a 10:1 for the working load to break strength ?

If it is a newer chain, there should be a grade stamp on it, seems like 7 is the magical number. If it is an older chain it is probably a good one, but may not have the stamps. I have never had the dot check for the grade, but they can if they want.

1/2 in chain would only be of use to guys running lowboys or hauling heavy equipment, a general freight hauler will not use it.

Early angle drive for drill or brace.  Possibly for buffer head.
