How to Break Out Rivets

WARNING : Always wear approved safety accessories for hands and face when breaking out rivets

1. Select proper anvil slot number on saw chain breaker anvil which matches the drive link number on the saw chain to be broken (see "Saw Chain Drive Link Number Identification" on page 48). 2. Insert saw chain portion for breaking into the proper slot of the saw chain anvil and push saw chain forward until bottom tie-strap is flush with the far side of slot. (Drive link is then supported on both sides of slot.)




3. Position rivet head directly under punch. Pull handle down if using a bench saw chain breaker, or hammer out rivet if using a handheld punch. Do not use excessive force. Note: Important — when breaking saw chain at cutter, make sure cutter is in the top position.
