Right Chain Tool ???
« on: October 24, 2021, 01:35:47 PM »
After reading posts and asking, I bought the Whale Riveting tool to fit my new chain, however, it looks like it's more for using on the solid rivet type not the hollow ones as there is no attachment to help 'splay out' the end of the rivet - am I being thick or do I need an extra attachment or a different type of joining link - help please as I want to get back on the bike !!

I've got the Whale tool, it came with the tool for spreading the rivet.
But I seem to remember they did do different versions with slightly different tools.

edit
Yup, different options on this page.

You can buy the rivet punch separately, they're out of stock with B&C but you can get them elsewhere.

Anyone know when the rivets are 'bashed' enough - I used my new Whale tool and they are about 5.4mm now, the original ones [unbashed by me] are a little less at about 5.3mm - have I done it enough ???

You need to find your chain manufacturer's specification for how much 'flare' is required, for example https://didchain.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Chain-Flare-Dimensions-1.pdf.
