Var #59 Cog Remover Chain Replacement

What type of chain is this? Single Speed or Moped? Has the letters tm on the chain outer plate.

Do you have the tool in hand? If so then you can measure and not assume what someone says is real. Most mopeds use a 1/8" chain (like many coaster brake and IGH bikes did) but some use a stronger spec (usually meaning wider and beefier). If you don't have a measuring tool maybe you can hold the tool up against a known cog and judge the fit. The TM likely refers to a production code and not a size. This is where your LBS is a help.

Why do you want to replace the chains? They look ok to me.

Probably 1/2" pitch, 1/8" wide.

Not that specific tool ,
[sharing] I got a much more reliable chain whip , by using 1/8" chain master links
where the chain was joining the holes in the steel of the lever Hot rolled steel, flatbar
jamming a section of tubing for a handle on the other end..
