• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

for someone who isn't a professional cutter the combo breaker/spinner on ebay works pretty decent for the few chains a year they will break. i used a punch and a hammer for years.

Ah so that combo one isn't that great eh? I that's what I was just looking at, looked sturdy in the pics lol. The stihl seperate one is about $50 more maybe that's the way to go?

no, i like the combo one on ebay. many whine about the wheels not lining up but it really doesn't matter just to spin rivets. i have one but i rigged it and a vice on a hitch mounted post for the truck when working jobs away from home. i traded for a cast foley set from a member here and wouldn't have it any other way. the old cast sets are the best available IMO. what you do for work Ben? i see you say long shifts in your 461 thread. you must be doing fall and burn? the 461 looks to have been doing some fall and burn work judging by the black grime on it.

I have a cast Herr breaker and spinner. The breaker needs a anvil and a handle. I have just used a 3/8 extension for a handle years. The location is Illinois. Price is dependent on shipping costs
