Welding chain links?

I'm wanting to fuse chain links together in order to make a stick figure body. I know, it sounds a bit cheesy, but I just wanna do it. I have access to a stick welder, but that's it (I miss my MIG back in the states).

I can just weld the links together into the shape I want. However, it seems like there should be a way to get the links to fuse together by running a current through the chain. I know I've seen stuff like that, just can't find any How To's.

Any ideas?

you need to cause a dead short in them..example..Using one of those jumper boxes and hooking the positive side to one end and the negative to he other..

CAUTION sparks will fly and cables will maybe melt..

A while. Can't really say, but it'll be a long while. I enjoy it here, for now.

Nothing like cruising the streets of Baghdad with 16 tons of armor...

Oh yeah, and thanks for linking my pic...
