I have a couple of tins of 'Link Life' for non O - X ring chains, get a camp stove or do it when the boss is out of her kitchen.... stick the tin on the ring warm it up lower the chain in, let it soak, lift it out and let it drip off into the cooling tin.

That's the OLD school way!!

I used to use "Castrol Chain wax" now unavailable :roll:
Next it was "WD40 chain wax" now Halfords sell "Banana Slip Chain wax" which smells of bananas(not tactical) all of the above seem to cling on prety good if left to dry :mrgreen: may lubricate the joining link with Super glue, ian :lol:

Unless you spend all your time riding through mud or sand, avoid the O-Ring type. They are wider than the standard and the chain guide takes the heads off the rivets, and then you loose the link. Speaking from experience.

Totally agree with you, but new chain on its way :? Will see if I can get the Dremel and ease its progress through the guides, ian :geek:
