WTB Chain breaker

I know it's something most people don't have more than one of, but I thought I'd ask anyway if someone may have a chain tool laying around they don't use and want to get rid of.

Yeah I guess I should say "breaker/riviter" i have the same one from harbor freight but I don't think I can press and rivet the chain with it.

Does the breaker pin come out?
If it does, I was going to make the riveting pin on my lathe.

yeah it does, and I found some stuff on the web where a guy is using the tool to rivet a 530 chain, but I'm not sure what I can use to actually press the plate on.

You might be interested in an EK Screw-type masterlink. Don't need any riveting tools and pretty straight forward.

in the antipodes we use an angle grinder to get it off and a hammer and punch to get it on.

that did cross my mind, but for $15 usd for the breaker, and a lathe and a bunch of steel rod in my garage, I figured I would try. why not?
