need a timing chain crimper / riveter for an OM617

hey guys,

I tried reaching out to both members listed on the tool rental list who had chain tools, but I haven't secured one yet.

Does anyone have the nice chain crimping tool they can ship to me? I'd be happy to pay shipping on top of the rental fee. I'm going to need it pretty soon here (getting tired of biking to work!)

I had the same trouble. 'Cos I took my crank out I took the chain to the dealer and asked them nicely to crimp it for me... but if the crank stays put...

...errrrr is there something in the tool rental thread?
