Chain Breaking Tool

Postby Ace! » Fri Apr 24, 2015 2:16 pm

What is the best tool for (up to) a 525 chain. I'm looking for something smaller than a bread box, but easy to use. I want to be able to throw it in a small back pack or bag if possible. I don't care how much it costs if it works consistently enough to justify the expense (I've read of a number of them failing or being difficult to use). I want to break and replace a rivet type master link over and over, all day long, for weeks at a time (slight exaggeration).

I've seen them from $16.95 to $125.00.

What works for you, consistently.
