CHAIN WEAR SCALE INSTRUCTIONS

Scale has instructions printed on the sides for use in determining chain “stretch”.

a. Determine pitch length of chain using 6" scale on one side of wear scale.
b. If pitch is 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/2, 2 or 3 inches, use side A of scale.
c. If pitch is 5/8, 1 1/4, or 2 1/2 inches, use side B.
d. Align point A or B to center of a pin and note position of the opposite A or B point.
e. If the second point also lines up with a pin, the chain is worn and should be replaced. If the second point extends beyond, the chain is still in good condition as far as stretching is concerned.
