Anybody know of a source for hanging fixture chain? I have a customer who I have have to move a chandelier for. The new location requires a much longer chain so I need to rewire it and replace the chain.

A general source for just about ANY type of hardware or industrial component:
http://www.mcmaster.com

Their print catalog has 10-12 pages of chain, everything from logging chain to bead chain. Gotta be something there that fits your need.

Hal,
My local Menards sells bags of the common colors. I'm sure they have the gold and antique finish, maybe white and black as well.

Here's one of the best places I've found for lamp and fixture parts: http://www.grandbrass.com/?OVRAW=lamp%20parts&OVKEY=lamp%20part&OVMTC=standard
