whoah. Explain yourself more.
Have you seated the chain in the right spot in the tool?
It shouldn't take a wrench to break a chain so something is wrong.

hah sorry. yeah the pin is lined up right in the center of the chain pin. i dont know why its so hard. it turns like 1 full turn at the max, and only like 1 mm pops out of the other end and bending it back and forth doesnt do the trick
