Re: Chain breaker and spinner

The bigger problem with tools like the Harbor Freight combination Breaker/Spinner is one of quality control.

One guys HF combo tool couldn't be nicer and has lasted well with no broken punches or anything for many rolls of chain.

And then the next guy has one that is almost unusable.

The biggest problem seems to be the two sides of the spinner will not be aligned. The next big problem is the anvil to rest the chain on to press the rivet out is machined slightly narrow and will not clear the connector plate so the driver will rest properly. This problem will also cause the punch to break. And last the hole in the spinner shaft is not on center and will wobble all over. I read all this on the customer reviews on the HF website.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
