Read the entire post. They mention this link
http://www.harborfreight.com/heavy-d...ker-66488.html
Then it is mentioned that there die can't press the rivit on a new machine. Just use a piece of steel as a backer. Works fine for $10 plus shipping.

I use a grinder to cut off the chain and to grind down the rivets. Bolt cutters are good too for removing chain.

I imagine you could rivet using a small c clamp or vise and a hardened stake or punch. But I guess you do it the mechanically proper way the first time it'll save you some headache.

Get the harbor freight chain breaker. It is mainly used to press out the old pin but you can also use it to rivet the new pin as well.

To rivet the pin, used the extra punch supplied and put the punch backwards through the hole (large side facing towards the back of the chain). The pin will now provide a surface to support the chain to swage the pin. It is definitely not as nice as Motion pro chain tools, but it'll get the job done for seasonal chain replacements.

Using the ball joint puller is also a good idea if you have one handy. But for 10.00 bucks the HF chain breaker can't be beat.

Or just get the proper chain tool kit from a motorcycle shop... Y attempt to rig a contraption that will possibly damage the new chain/ master link. The chain tool kit is cheap
