I need to make up some roller chains and saw a chain breaker at TSC but it didnt have any instructions with it. Looked fairly simple but i wondered if they are any good or am i better off sticking to the old method of grinding and hamering on these roller chains? Thanks in advance!

I have one and I would never do the grind and hammer to fix one. I have messed up more chains with the grind and hammer method but never messed one up with a chain breaker. Simple tools and work well. It does take a little bit of practice to get them to work real good so take a piece of old chain and try it s few times. They are so simple even a cave man can do it

Used one for years when operating a combine. Never be without it.

I have one and to be honest if I need to break a new chain and am near a grinder I use the grinder. What happens to me most of the time with a breaker is they will shove the pin through the side plate just fine only to leave the riveted part of the pin stuck hard in the link and then your back to punch and hammer. This is much less of a problem when dealing with a worn chain. I guess the bottom line is they are better than a rock and nail if out in the field but not exactly what they could be if they would simply shove the pin all the way through the links.
