    What I needed was a good tool to break a bunch of chains down into dozens of little chain bits for a robotics project. After working with one of the cheap $5 big box store tools for about 15 minutes, I realized that there HAD to be something better out there. This was it. Sturdy construction, good leverage, and a push pin that actually stays inline with the chain pin while you’re turning the handle. I’ve lost count of how many links I’ve separated at this point (I can’t WAIT to start reassembling them! *sigh*) and the tool has put up with every second of use. It’s probably got nearly a lifetime’s worth of “normal” use on it already, and if I do happen to break it or wear it out, I will happily buy another one and carry on. Definitely pleased with the quality!

    (4/10/2014, edited to add) – I’ve now used this tool to separate nearly 1000 individual links, which is a lot less fun than it may sound. 🙂 It’s starting to exhibit a little bit of wear but is still working very well. For something that was most likely *not* designed with this amount of constant (ab)use in mind, I’d say it’s absolutely tough enough to hold up to anything a more normal person could throw at it. I’m hereby awarding this tool an honorary 6th star for thriving in some terrible working conditions.

    Awesome little Chain Tool. Haven’t used it more than a few time, but so far I have no “words of warning” against this product. I took a few pics of it before I removed the packaging. Thought someone here may want to see something other than the generic shots used.

  3. Iwas scammed my chain tool doesnt have the little niche for joining the chain back together.
    wish i watched this video first i would have got one like yours. I had to use a vice, luckly the chain did not bind too much. maybe i can mill out a portion of my tool any make an niche for joining the chain.
