No chain riveter - No problem
« on: March 04, 2019, 01:20:02 pm »
Simple tip to rivet a masterlink with indents on the tips of the link

Replaced the chain on the 990, wanted to rivet the new chain to do a decent job but simply could not get one to use.

Bicycle bearing just bigger than the masterlink's inside diameter and a g-clamp - done  :thumleft:
(did remove the bearings - only used them to flare the hole)

Just a thought ................. put a cloth over it while tightening, you don't wanna be staring at it, should it shatter.
Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!
