For installing new cable protector ( strain relief ).
I'm Considering going back to this style as opposed to the IEC entry.

Yes it may be a great tool to own, the strain reliefs (thanks for the right word:-) can be a nightmare to remove or install. I do prefer the IEC because it's really flexible, you can chose length, socket to any country, you do not have to fight with the cord while transporting the unit and so on:-)

A chain tool, to press out the pins to "break" the chain, and press back pins to connect chains.

Best wishes

That is a tool to open chains sir. Like the ones on bicycles.

I see two people on the globe pushed "enter" on the same time

I've used it a few times and it works great. I use it old guitar amps and my own prototypes.
It puts a proper 'crimp' in the cable that is difficult to do with pliers.
Keeps the heyco relief looking new and professional.

Heck, I had that sitting around for the longest time no knowing what kind of tool
that is. Holy Cow, I need to get a new bike chain as the old one broke and the
good folks at the bike shops want something like $135USD for chain installation
plus the chain! They were willing to sell me some POS chain tool that might
work only once.

I assume I just buy a correct chain or slightly longer chain than I need and punch out
the links I don't need, then install the master link, stick the chain on the bike and
go.

I should probably measure everything first, before buying a chain. Or take the bike
in and buy a quality chain and install myself.

Thank you gentlemen.


STRAIN RELIEF

Well now I know what that tool is now also. I have been using Needle Nose vice grips for this.
I would use the big standard vice grip to set the strain relief, wait, then after the set, quickly
use the neele nose vice grips to stick it through the hole. Yes, even if I have a too small

ID (where the wire go though) I've been known to use a dremel cutting burr to widen
the ID inside of the strain relief. I don't have every size in stock...and it's good to use
up what is in stock first.

I should ask at my local surplus machine tool, aircraft parts place if they have one.

Cheers,
