I'm in my shop sorting and organizing stuff and I came upon this.It's an old Cannon chain breaker for 1/2" chain.

Very cool! It's easy to become accustomed to the current models of things, and not think of how else things could be / could have been done. 

I know that the rivet tools for bicycle chains (generally have a straight shaft rivet, unlike saw chain) commonly use a small, threaded / screw type press to remove and set rivets, but have heard that there is a similar, hand press, that sets the rivet at precisely the correct depth.  These are / were specific to a certain size of chain, but if you were doing a lot of them . . . .

The right tool for the right job!

P.S. Bicycle chains used to be a lot more standardized.  Today, there are a variety of different widths, brands, etc. that are not as compatible / interchangeable.  Some have reusable rivets that are pressed in / out, some have single use rivets that are snapped off in place, some use master links, and some require the ends of the rivets to be peened over (but not much as saw chain).
