Chain Maintenance

Here's a quick tip for keeping your lengths of chain neat and organized
Instructions
How do you store your chain? How do you keep it organized and/or untangled?

I think there are as many options as there are people. I've used several types... little zippy bags, compartmental boxes and spools. Zip bags allow the chains to get tangled, the same with the sorting containers. And the spools are too big to store easily.

One thing that I've found that works great for me is a yarn winder or card. They're used to wind up fiber or thread or cording and it works great for chain.

They are inexpensive, made of sturdy but thin wood. I can wind up my chain and there is plenty of room to make notes right on it regarding size, supplier or item number.
