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
