Picture of Make a Chain Whip on the cheap
Hello all! This is my first Instructable and while it's not a really difficult one, it's one that a frugal bicycle mechanic can easily appreciate.


- An old pair of pliers
- A second pair of pliers
- An old bike chain
- Chain breaker
- Hammer

Step 1: Destroy the Old Pliers

Picture of Destroy the Old Pliers
Ensuring that your old pliers are easily taken apart like the one in the photo, use the other pair of pliers to remove the bolt.
