Chain Press- would you trust this one? - June 15, 2009, 09:56 AM

Would that chain press work for a 520 conversion? It looks a bit "delicate" to me considering the other ones I have seen (aka Motion Pro) are much "beefier"

Ya might get one good use out of it. I doubt the set screw is harder than the pin you need to peen over. Just get the Jumbo tool and be done.

I think its just a press, not a riveter, so yeah it should work fine, just you'll either need a riveter too or just use clip style master links

Listen to Dodge, spend the $100 and get the Motion Pro Jumbo tool. If you want to have a tool that will last for more than one use. Get it, read the directions, and enjoy.

I have one you can borrow if you promise to return it in the same condition I gave it to you... I have had it returned with pins broken (but not like I ever used it to break chains anyway)... the riveter works fine.

mmm, now I'm confused. I thought that by pressing it all together the pins would "mushroom" causing it to be riveted. So what is a riveter?

if it's just a press sure...

but definitely will sturggle to rivet. You need to be able to put a socket on to turn with a good amount of leverage/force.

1) Press the master link onto chain

2) rivet the pin to close the link.

It's a two step process that uses different plates. One plate is flat the other plate mushrooms out the rivet to hold.

Pressing the link together requires significantly more force than the riveting. Too much force breaking the chain or riveting how you break pins. You just want to mushroom out the pins, it requires less than a full turn with the motion pro regular tool.

Pressing the plate on though was a pita.

prkid, I have a tool, if you want a hand let me know, Im in woodbridge and just did this.

I didn't have the same experience....in fact, I thought I pressed too much and riveted too little.
