Tried a New Breaker Anvil

I really wanted to like this one. Slotted anvils are simple, but they fit some chains better than others, and cannot compensate for wear on the tie straps. Threaded anvils are infinitely adjustable, but take a little time to adjust each time they are used. The spring loaded model should have been ideal!

I tried it on a few different pitches of chain: The jaws did not close tight enough for1/4" pitch chain, and did not open wide enough for 3/4" pitch. While it held the 3/8 low profile, .325", 3/8" and .404" chains, it did not like the thinner tie straps on the smaller pitch chains, and slipped off very easily.The 2 halves did not slide as smoothly as I would have liked, due to the rough castings.

I still like the idea. Could work if you mostly use full sized 3/8 and .404 pitch chains. And one that was machined with smoother surfaces and sharper edged jaws might work better with all pitches. I would also like the option to adjust the spring tension.
