Default Re: Just got it on!

about dutting the chain
get it right the first time.

Take out your master link.
measure the chain carefully.
use your dremel to grind off the brad of a link pin
then drive the pin out with a punch... Big nail will work if you don't have a punch.
Then put your master link back in.
Be sure to get it right cause you have no way to add links back.

If you had a chain breaker tool it would be easy to adjust the chain but this is the old fashioned way just be careful not to cut too much out
