Curious if I could use a Shimano Riveting tool as a substitute. Sure would beat grinding, sanding, and punching out the chain link.
you are very much right harbor freight is hit or miss sometimes tools will live forever but the same tool will last about 2 hoursCareful though, some of those cheapos wont even break a bicycle chain. I went through a couple before I decided to spend a little more on a park tool chain breaker and I've been usin that for years now. For the 415 chain I use this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-Chain-Breaker-Cutter-415-42-415H-420-423-428-428H-520-530-/321791297561?hash=item4aec418819:g:wfgAAOSwxp9W8eI4. This does the job, but there are better ones.
