Re: Stainless Steel Shackles?
I can speak for a few types of stainless, 304 and a286.
304 isnt brittle, a 286 is more so, but not to the point it couldnt be used for this.
both can be bent and bent back with less fatige than mild steel.
I have no hard data, no numbers ( im sure somone does). this is just an opinion from me working with these metals for a few years.
3/8 stainless 304 would be a strong shackle.
too small to be seen, and too big to control, and treated like a walking bomb...
