    bit the bullet and got some chains

    well 105 dollars later and now 2 weeks to wait i should have some nice 3/4" 55lb chains
    looked high and low and cheapest place i could find was ironwoodys.
    wish i could have found some used ones cheaper.

    Next time look at rigging supply stores in your area. We can get 1/2" for 2.50/foot here in KC and avoid shipping.

    I drove around near the lake one afternoon and found 30lbs worth of chains for free. I also went and checked at a couple auto shops and got a nice bucket full of chains probly weighs about 40lbs. So if your looking to get even more, just check out some local places like auto shops, shipping yards, train yards, back of old warehouses...etc.

    this is the best thing to do. i love finding stuff like that. i found wood to make my boards out of on the side of the road, and picked up an empty keg from behind a gas station. it will be a great day when i stumble upon some chains.

    I'm in Kansas City, so we don't have any docks or lakes nearby either

    Rigging supply stores usually cater to the trucking or tree service industries. If you can't find them for free like the others said above, this would be the next best place to check.
