motin pro slack setter

Any body out there use the motion pro slack setter? Is it good or a waste of money? I installed the OEM center stand. The main spring was a struggle. It was worth it though, works great.

I have one, it saves some time and is cheap enough. I works well as I no longer have to squat or lay down near the chain and hold a flashlight and machinist rule at the same time.

Machinist rule? I give my chain a boot toe and if it looks right, it is.
I just adjusted the chain on my BMW because I could hear it slapping around and knew it was loose. The toe test confirmed the audible sensor.
Is it really rocket science for some?

I also think the boot - toe method works best for me since I have been dealing with chain drives since 1968...
Still have to work with them at my current employment as there is over 300' of #60H chain drive rollers on the conveyor line driving 3" Dia. heavy steel rollers. Good thing they are not adjustable though....!!

We had chain driven conveyors in the overhead of our facility. Guys on days that were supposed to lube them didn't and they got terribly noisy after a while.
Wore out a lot of sprockets and bearings too.
When you can hear your chain it's time to adjust and lube.

The only time these chains get lubed is when one of them breaks a master link or half link and we have to repair it so the line can continue...2000#+ Polymer -concrete molds get jammed up or the production people leave side bolts loose and they fall into the double chain runs under the covers and stall the gear motors. We have a new moving section prototype in place and running that only uses 2 runs of 80H chain per section instead of 12 qty. double chain rollers...last way longer and foul proof from wayward loose bolts.
