Pro Series Tool Shed Chain Tool is a compact chrome chain tool for servicing, removing and replacing chains.
- adjustable for different chain sizes
- Its ok for the price, but the pin is not hardened Review by Ian
The new one looks almost identical to the old one, except that now the anvil is adjustable, so you can ensure the chain is tight within the tool. That's important when pressing the pin through when re-assembling the chain. And that's an improvement.
But there's been a manufacturing shortcut that isn’t good. This is that the tool pin is not hardened. I had a quick look before I used the tool to press the chain pin back in, and then had a look after the job was completed. The pin, which had been semi-sharp, i.e. slightly flattened off when factory new, had flattened right off after one use, and was slightly burred. Obviously it is quite soft and once fully blunt, it will no longer grip the end of the chain pin, but will tend to slide off to one side. So this tool won’t last more than a few uses. Or it might even already be shot.
Pros: Adjustable anvil. Cheap. Does the job.
Cons: Tool pin not hardened. Tool won’t last long before it has to be replaced.
