Did you have a chain cutter and riveter?

Cut chain, push connecting link side plates into position, and rivet pin heads with this tool. It is suitable for cutting chain in the following sizes: 520, 525, 530 (50), and 532. The forged steel chain tool is made for heavy-duty application. Flares pinheads appropriately and avoids over-riveting or riveting pinheads off center. Tool can be used on both straight and curved links.

This tool was popular from about 1920 to 1950. They are now very rare and command high prices from vintage dealers and chain store collectors.

Tools of this type were built under license by several companies including Black & Decker, Milwaukee, AEG, and Victor.

The Columbia River Highway Bridge that crosses the Columbia River near Goldendale, Washington was cut using a Howard Miller chain tool. The bridge was completed in 1935 and is one of only two remaining single-lane open spandrel box culvert bridges left in Oregon. It was restored by the Columbia River Gorge National Heritage Area in 2004.

Bridge bolts and nuts that were used to attach the chain tool to the side of the bridge have been found buried in the ground near the site where it collapsed. This indicates that the worker using the tool had trouble lifting it into place, so another worker came to his aid. When the first worker released the handle to allow the second worker to grab it, the tool fell to its final resting place.

What type of chainsaw chain cuts the fastest?

The square, full-chisel chain developed by Oregon is the quickest form of chainsaw chain. Oregon Power Cut (tm) saw chains are complete chisel cutters with reduced vibration. These chains are designed to accommodate bar lengths ranging from 16 to 36 inches. They come in a variety of link styles for cutting different types of wood. The square chain is our most popular model because it provides a good balance between weight and speed.

The full-elliptical chain was originally developed as a top-of-the-line professional chain for use on radial-arm saws. It features elliptical links that provide better grip when cutting contact with veneer or other thin materials. These chains are also capable of handling longer bars without becoming too heavy. Square drive motors can handle chains up to 1/4 inch thick, while half-elliptical motors can manage chains as thick as 3/8 inch. Because these are high-end chains, they tend to be more expensive than regular chains.

Square chains are currently used by many small business owners as their only chainsaw chain because of their ability to cut fast while still being light enough not to hurt your engine. These chains are available for most common models of chainsaws including corded and battery-powered units. They usually attach to the front of the saw using a square ring mounted underneath the blade guard. A special tool is required to install new chains on your chainsaw.

What are chainsaws made for?

Saw chains (as well as chainsaws in general) are used to cut wood. This might be for tree harvesting for pulp or timber, tree surgery, or firewood processing. The saw chain has evolved dramatically since its creation, whether for hand-held chainsaws, automated wood harvesters, or chain mortisers. Modern chainsaws are now capable of cutting down trees up to 15 feet tall and weighing over 100 pounds.

Early chains were made of straight, steel links connected by hardened leather or cordage belts. These chains were not very flexible and could only make sharp cuts because they had no lateral movement. They also required frequent resharpening.

More modern chains use circular metal plates linked together with rivets or welds instead. These chains can be as thick as 1/4 inch and have many more links than early chains, so they are much more flexible and can make a fine cut on either side of a curve or angle in the wood. They can also reach deeper into the woods where smaller trees are located.

The latest generation of chains use multiple layers of platelets bonded together with thin strips of stainless steel or plastic sandwiched between each layer. These chains are extremely strong but can be difficult to sharpen. They can also reach deep into the woods where smaller trees are located.

Saw chains require regular maintenance to work properly.
