Anyone Have a Chain Riveter?

Well I got my 520 chain in and I need to rivet it together, unfortunately I do not have a chain riveter nor do I feel like dropping $100 on one as money is tight right now. Anyone have one I can borrow for a day? I can pick it up and drop it off and as a thank you a 6 pack of your choice beer will be included. Please let me know. Thanks,

What shop sells them for that price? Off E-bay cheapest I could find is $50 (plus shipping) and the local shops tell me they are $90+. Thanks,

you can get a chain breaker and also a attach a bit on the end to mushroom the rivet in place. I will try to find one on line later.

I said fuck it and went ahead and ordered a breaker / press / riveter combination tool for $85 from Cal-Sportbike. Wish I would have just got it from MotoMummy when I placed the original order for the sprockets and chain. Oh well. Later,

Wow...in one fell swoop you manage to both not provide any useful info and slam a sponsor. Nice work.
