Chain Breaker / Riveter
« on: January 27, 2018, 04:30:49 PM »
Hi just thought I would impart a bit off Information.
After trying various Chain Breaker / Riveters I came across this one, Kellerman Chain Tool KTW 2.5. Without doubt the best chain tool I have ever used.. ITs easy to use and it Works, The press tool for putting on the side plate has even got a built in magnet included to hold the plate in place on the tool. Not the cheapest but for around £70 it will last a life time ( subject to abuse ).

That's a good recommendation thanks.
I bought the Sealey on the reccomendation of Delboys garage what a piece of junk broke rivetting the first chain.
Now use a DID type works well but I do grind the heads off first.

Yep Even with this one I grind the heads off ( I use a Dremal ? ) only takes a minute and even though I have every faith that it would work without cannot see the point in stressing the tool..... :028:

Used mine this afternoon to remove a couple of links as I'm sticking with the new smaller rear sprocket. Works very well although I don't think it would press many pins out without grinding. :152:

Great stuff and glad your happy with the new Sprocket.
I am not going quite as extreme with mine just down two teeth. ( sprocket should be here this week ) so I may not even need to reduce the chain will see how much adjustment I have when fitted.
As to the chain Tool I always grind off the heads as it only take a minute and lessons the strain its a no brainer really.

You'll still have some adjustment left if you just go down 2 teeth, I have gone down 3 teeth to 42 and she's still got a little left, I think you could even go down to 41 and still be ok, but it won't leave much adjustment.
I'll also be keeping the smaller sprocket and taking a link or two out next week. She still pulls like a train even with 3 teeth off the rear and cruising rpm is a bit less manic.

While I'm glad you've posted a solid recommendation, you've reminded me that after a decade of shaft drive I have to get back into chain work.

I'm not sure these are available in the 'States.

Oh, well, I needed a new tool anyhow.  May as well take your recommendation and yell at you when I disapprove.  :150:

I believe that they are available there. As the instructions show a uk & usa flag on the English description.  ????

I’ve been casually searching.  I have not found one here yet.  I may still.

In the interim, send me yours.  :015:
