Have you ever needed to make a 35 series chain shorter? Well this is the tool for you!
The block holds your chain steady while you use the screws to press a pin out of a link and ... Break the Chain
This tool can also be used to re-assemble chains withOUT using a master-link. You'll need a bit of skill and a dash of patience, and maybe some practice but in the end its not that hard.
This will only work for #35 chain but we do also have a #25 Chain Break for the smaller chains in your life.
Quotes from the AndyMark Staff:
"This might break chain better than a Dark Soul" ~Nathan
"Its monolithic styling and proportions reminds me of 2001: A Space Odyssey, oddly I haven't used 35 chain since about '01 too." ~Ruth
- Chain Size: #35
ARC #35 Chain Break
Works really slick. Makes chain repair very easy. Good quality construction
The #35 Chain Equivalent of the Notorious "Dark Soul" Chain Breaker for #25 Chain
This #35 chain breaker met all of the expectations that we on 1519 had for #35 chain when looking for a #35 chain breaker as good as the notorious "Dark Soul" Chain Breaker (am-4024) for #25 chain. We were very pleased with this ARC chain breaker -- it worked perfectly for both removing and reinserting chain. It was small enough to fit (albeit just barely) on our #35 chain for the arm drive on our 2019 robot. We'd definitely recommend this chain breaker to other teams.
Garbage. Broke on first use
I thought this would be a good design because it could be mounted in a vice to make it easier to use. However, the push pin broke at the base of the bolt on the first use. I don't know if it was an individual defect or a bad concept. Will attempt to return it.
