I remember years ago someone tried that.
The strength of the bead chain wasn't enough for hinges.
If you have found some really strong chain, it might work, but it didn't at that time.
Try seaching for bead chain on the site search feature.

Netcraft has some that are rated for 35# test.If two bead chains are used per section I would think that would be plenty strong.I'm trying to make a Tru-Tungston four section clone.The flexibility of the bead chain is what is appealing.I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and buy some and give it a try.I've got a couple other projects on yhe bench that aren't as flexible as I would like ;maybe bead chain can rescue these too.
