HOW TO CUT ROLLER CHAIN TO SPECIFIC SIZE

Roller chain is manufactured in 10 foot pieces, but many applications require specific lengths.
For this reason, roller chain stocking distributors "cut" and connect roller chain to specific "pitch" or foot size.

Mickan Tool and Supply has been cutting roller chain to specific lengths for mud pumps, drawworks, and many other oilfield and industrial applications since 1993. Our method is below:
