a good one is like $10. a cheap one is like $5.
Someone asked where to get the chain breaker in the picture. Tractor Supply has that one and even a bigger one.
Yesterday, I removed 3 links from my 415 chain very easily with one good punch, using a 1x12 board with a hole gouged into it with a knife for the pin to go in. Then today I needed to remove one more link and I gave it a LOT of good punches with a small phillips screwdriver and hammer and the pin would not budge. I gave up and just used the chain tensioner.
