Any close by with chain rivet tool(Iowa)

I'm in melcher, IA and wondering if any one around has a tool and would be willing to help out for a beer or a little cash? Old chain is off and new chain is on about as well as can be without a tool. Thought I'd ask before spending cash on a tool I'll probably use twice in a life time....

Thanks!

I appreciate the views guys. Decided not to wait any longer and bought a motion pro PBR tool. So if any of you are in need and close enough by :)

Thanks!

You'll be surprised at how many times that little baby will come out of the toolchest, and it will celebrate each and every event by executing a most-beautiful rivet for you.

There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like having the proverbial "right tool for a job" to make it as easy as it looks on TV (or YouTube, whatever). You now have a greater overall aggregate mechanicability that will make you more useful to the motorcycling public, to which you belong. I congratulate you.

I just saw your post, have one, but I'm in Chicagoland, not much use to you. I was in a similar predicament a coupla years ago and resolved it the same way, bought one, you'll use it again, and smile with the results, and at some point a buddy of yours will want to do a chain/sprocket kit, and you'll be able to help him out admirably, and you'll both smile with the results, as the two of you drink your Thank You 12. Repeat.

Regards, Mark
