its basically the same thing.....save the hassle and get a Chain breaker....35$ on ebay and you can actually use it for more then 1 thing.

My tool is made of better stuff i had a Bone Saver and mine did the same as yours broke the 3 time i used it so i made one better.
Mine uses a Grade 8 Cap Head Screw to push the pin Flush with the Bone and then another Grade 8 Cap Head Screw with a Hardened Pin the same pins used in the Drive Shaft U Joints in your car and look how many miles some of them have on them 10'000+miles.
So my Pin is MUCH Stronger then the one that comes with the bone save but as i said you need to use the Cap Head Screw with no pin First to push the Pin Flat and then the Screw with the Pin to push it from there.

And as i have said i have only used this with a LOSI 8 Buggy and Truggy so i am not sure how it will work with other buggys and truggys but it Should Work Fine.

Also, I have to replace my front center drive shaft on my 2.0 buggy. The pin is very worn after 1.5 gallons, But the ball on the other end is also worn, so I just bought a new driveshaft.

I used a friends Hudy the other day, it has a spring loaded pin attachment that holds the CVD straight when starting the new pin, how do ou do this with your replacement tool?

Thanks

Thanks Integra. I like that I can just grab some at the auto parts store too according to what I just googled.
So I'm sure you clean everything real good then put just enough on. What's the maintenance after that been for you? Thanks again
