  • Chainsaw Rivet Spinner Made.

    Another project where i needed a welder and a metal lathe.
    I needed one of these since i "retired" and have lots of chainsaws to play with. I can get chain cheaper in rolls but you have to connect the links. So i built my own rivet spinner. My dad had one years ago and i remembered how it worked. I made the hardned anvil from a drill bit held with a hidden set screw. Worked pretty good on the chains i tried today...Bob

            That looks great, I agree with the statement that it looks nicer then what one can purchase. This I would like to keep in my head for a winter project.
