Sure, the initial price tag may sting a little, but other chain tools will ultimately cost more in messed up master links and broken pins for the tool. Using this tool is a pleasure, and now that I have it I look forward to the job unlike when I was confined to using a cheap kit. This is the last chain tool you will ever need to buy.

Used this tool to rivet a DID 530zvmx x-ring chain. It worked smoothly and trouble free. I did grind the heads off the rivets on the old chain before pressing them out. I figured that would be better for the tool,and it went quickly with the angle grinder. Enjoyed using this tool!
Works well and does what is is advertised to do. That being said, when breaking the chain, I always grind the rivets off flush with a grinder before pushing the link pins out of the chain so you don't break the push pin supplied with the tool.
I used this tool to replace the size 525 chain on my sport bike. The job was easy and went well when using the easy to follow instructions. Be sure and grind the rivet head flat with the side plate before attempting extraction otherwise you will most likely bend or brake the extraction pin as I have read about in other articles involving chain breakers.
