I needed one of these since i "retired" and have lots of chainsaws to play with. I can get chain cheaper in rolls but you have to connect the links. So i built my own rivet spinner. My dad had one years ago and i remembered how it worked. I made the hardned anvil from a drill bit held with a hidden set screw. Worked pretty good on the chains i tried today...Bob

Looks like a quality piece. Nicely done.
I used to put chains together back in the day I worked on Pioneer Chain saws.

Looks great.

Although I have used a chainsaw for many years, I have never separated a chain. I wonder if you could give a brief explanation of how the spinner works. I assume you place the chain rivet in the spinner, but what next?

Thanks
