Motion Pro Chain Riveting Tools

I ended up with a nice one time discount with Motion Pro. A chain tool that can rivet up to a 530 chain is on the list. They have several to choose from and I'm not sure which to get. Here's the ones I'm looking at.

I'll be using it a few times a year to replace endless chains on various bikes.

Thanks,
Jesse

I have the kit you've listed third. It works very well but takes a bit of time to set up. I really like the looks of your second link. I'd buy that one.

I have the 08-0470, and it works well. One advantage is that it will rivet both hollow end and solid end links. The die block and riveting head/s are held on by magnets and are easy to change.

I also have the 3rd one & though a bit "fiddly" it works good. they all look pretty good.... #3 may be a bit over the top. no matter which one you get, when you use the thing break chain.... grind off the end of the rivet first. the pin will not push the swaged end of the rivet through the plate. not trying to tell the fox how to suck eggs, but instructions tend to be light on details & such

I appreciate the input and will probably get the PBR one. It seems like it could be easily carried on the bike at all times also.

Beezer, thanks for the tip!

I assume you knew I was referring to riveted chain & not those with the snap in clip. one more thing.... the steel they use on the pins is quite hard & a file might not cut it too well. I use a cutoff wheel or 4" grinder. try your stuff on a bit of scrap, especially if you think you are going to use it on the road

I have the 0058 kit and find that it does just about everything. I'd already owned a couple of chain breaking / riveting tools before getting this kit. I don't think I'll ever need anything else.

I've never ground the pins, just push them out with the tool!

I got this one too. It's heavy, indestructible and very rigid -- just like a good tool is supposed to be.

Closest tool in your links is the PBR which I see you got. Good choice

Ended up going with the 0470 since I could keep it on the bike easier. Thanks for all the replies!

Don't want to beat a dead horse, but after reading this thread and looking the tools over a bit I went with the number 2 on the list as well, the PBR. First one is too much like every other generic one and looks slightly less user friendly although it's probably just fine.

Guess I'll find out this weekend how good the PBR is, need to rivet my D.I.D. 530 x-ring chain(hollow heads).

I have one, and it has worked well. My only criticism is that the handle is too short. I had to use a deep socket on an extension to slip on and extend it.

Be forewarned. The PBR handles are made out of powdered metal or some kinda cheap cast.
I broke mine so I made a longer one out of SS , much happier now.
