You can request one lot key at a time, and after completing your first 9 lots you can begin requesting multiple keys at a time. You have 30 days from the date your lot key is assigned to complete and mail your lot.



If you cannot finish your lot on time, please submit the Lot Extension Request Form before your due date, so we can plan our inventory accordingly. You can request a maximum of two extensions, not to exceed 4 weeks total.

Just curious if you are working as a staff member for Titanchains.com? The owner, maybe?

We as members of wahm.com enjoy knowing a little bit about who is posting with us on this forum.(:

Interesting the timing of the post made explaining how titanchains pays for completed lots.

Maybe just maybe the post is telling us they now are issuing lot keys in a timely manner.

Hate to guess though.

Thanks so much for the update carin, I'll try my luck today.

I asked Titanchains staff about posting on WAHM.com and they gave me some advice on what to post and what not to post. They didn't want the instructions on how to make the bracelet given out on the forum.

I have no idea if staff from Titan takes a peek now and then at this thread. I do know if I had a successful work at home company like Titanchains, I would keep up with what is said on the internet.

I doubt the post was made by the owner or the staff. I think if they had posted they would have been more clear with what they were posting and why.

Just a thought that ran through my mind after the strange post popped up.

Glad to hear all is back to normal.


Is anyone using a table vise to make their weave? Ya know that great video that shows the mandrel with the chain being held in the vise.

She rotates the chain to make each loop.and I was wondering if that would be possible with the Titanchain. I want to start making this bracelet once again but the only way I could possibly do it is if I could really speed up and not have to spend so much time with the weave. It took me way longer than most of you.
Holding the mandrel did not work for me because it was too much pressure on my thumb.

The mandrel placed in a board worked but I think the position I set in and the glare from the light I used to see better gave me big problems which added to the time it took me to make the weave. Also when you try and change the way you are making the weave it throws you off so that the weave is inconsistent.

If I got the vise the right height and had a better light source maybe I could speed up a bunch.

Just thinking about this and wondering if a vise would work.
Is there any tool you can hold in a vise that would rotate so that the mandrel would rotate?

Did most of you speed up because of practice or is it some different ways you found to make the weave?


Trying to post the YouTube video with the vise but can't remember how to post a YouTube video on this forum, darn.
Embedding does not work. Got this with using the URL in share.

I just watched the video once again and I see her mandrel is bent on the end. Our mandrel wouldn't fit in the top of the vise correctly. Darn, just another issue to try and figure out. Darn

I'm brain storming and with taking a look around at allen wrenches, I now see you can buy them as small as 1/16" diameter.

Problem with all of this is the cost for buying the vise, having a table it would fit on, I'm not thinking as tight as we have to pull the loop you could twist it around the mandrel like she is doing in the video. Using a tool to twist it would take extra time.

Geez I want to make these bracelets once again but I'm thinking the risk of another injury and the cost for a change up, that may not work, is not worth it.

I'll keep running this all around in my head.

I use vise and twist the chain around mandrel without any problem. The vise cost me $20. It also helps for when you assemble the bracelets. Taking the chain of the mandrel at the end could be hard sometimes. I'd wear rubber gloves and hold another glove around chain and twist it off.

you may even find a vise on craigslist and a reasonable price.

I do not use a vise, I think my husband would have a heart attack if I put one on the kitchen table! Once we move I plan to have a craft corner, better yet a room, for just my work.

Harbor freight has a hobby vise for $16.99 plus right now they also have a 20% coupon. The vise is articulated so it rotates and fits on a table top with suction. Might want to see if that works for you.
