    Curious if I could use a Shimano Riveting tool as a substitute. Sure would beat grinding, sanding, and punching out the chain link.

    you use any old chain breaker, they should all be for rivetting too... hence the multiple slots and adjustable end thingy doodad.

    Looks like this tool is 415 compatible:

    I use my dremel to grind down the riveted part and knock the pins out with a punch. Been doing it like that for over 45 years which is how many years I been working on motorcycles as a living.

    you are very much right harbor freight is hit or miss sometimes tools will live forever but the same tool will last about 2 hours
