The anvil is not hard enough imp,the sets for spinning are not perfect and the spinner has a slight wobble but if your careful it does work. I would say its definetly better than the portable one sold by northern.

I don't make up enough chains to justify a chain breaker unless one comes about on the cheap .I just grind the rivet heads off and seperate the chain tie straps with a little sharp chisel .
