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:


Remove 10 foot pieces from boxes; this is the standard length from the manufacturer. 
“Pitches” or length required varies per application, confirm length with end user.

Roller chain - 10 foot piece
Roller chain tool and pin


Use a hammer and solid metal tool to remove cotter pin from top plate.
Use hammer to remove the connecting link and inner plates.


Using the connecting link and inner plates from the cut piece, connect 2 chain pieces together. There will be 2 inner plates between each roller.
The hammer is useful in tapping the connecting link through the rollers.

Roller Chain Cotter Pin


Firmly stamp the top plate over the final roller; use the steel tool as this will take effort.
Once top plate is firmly stamped, insert and bend cotter pin.
Spool the chain together for the completed piece!
