Well, this is a _**very**_ embarrassing defeat to admit to but I suppose I should be grateful that you folks potentially saved me a long run bike out of the woods. My demo shots were going great - easy to snap the outer link off one side with the Pack Pliers as before, but as any idiot (aside from this one apparently) will tell you multi-speed chains have peened ends on the rivets and it is not at all easy to push them through the center links even once the outer links are off.  It’s no problem with the 1/8” chains I usually run on my single speed (confirmed with a KMC and a Wipperman chain) as once one plate is off the other slides out with the pin; however, as of yet I have not found a way to make it work with a multi speed 3/32 chain.  So yeah, sorry to get your hopes up. Still need a chain breaker unless you’re switching to \#1FG
