Where Could I Purchase #35 Chain?

I looked everywhere for #35 Chains, and I just cannot seem to find an online store that sells them (or a trustworthy online store). The first placed I tired was the IFR Robotics, and they seemed to be out of stock for the year, and then I tired eBay, but the sellers do not ship to Canada. So. If you know a place, or an online store that sells and ships to Canada, I would appreciate your reply =)


if you want to order online i would normally suggest Innovation FIRST but they appear to be out of stock, try McMaster-Carr http://www.mcmaster.com/

In addition to McMaster-Carr, MSC Direct sells roller chain, as does Motion Industries and Grainger.

www.mscdirect.com also have chain, but only in 10’ lengths.

We purchase the chain at a local hardware store such as Lowes or Home Depot. They also have the links in stock. We do use McMaster Carr. They ship very fast with credit card purchase. Most places require you to purchase at least 10’ in the box.

Stock Drive Products sells #25 and #35 chain as well.

I’ll second Lowe’s; if you need it fast, hit the hardware section.

Small Parts Inc also carries it. :slight_smile:

Tractor Supply Co. They usually have a number of different sizes & if you have one in your area they also have 1/2 links & master links. (cheaper prices also, farmers don’t pay more than the generally have to)

while on this thread anyone know where to get #25 aluminum sprockets?

id try IFI, Mcmaster-Carr, and/or Andy Mark



ifi only has #35
mcmaster carr has #25 but not aluminum
and andymark only has #35

ok my bad, depending on the size, and tooth count you want, you should be able to get them at bike stores with the performance parts

Bicycle chain is not ANSI 25 chain. It has a 1/2" pitch, whereas 25 chain has a 1/4" pitch.

I go to a local lawn mower shop to get the chain.

Why online? You’ll be able to suggest that you’re from a FIRST team and deserve a discount, if you speak to them by phone, or better, in person. (It works.)

Canadian Bearings (They have lots of stock.)
Motion Industries
Ontario Belting and Power Transmission (These guys also have a Scarborough location.)

And places like Brafasco or Fastenal might also sell it. Call ahead to confirm stock. McMaster-Carr, SDP/SI also sell it, but you’ll pay a premium, both because they don’t specialize in it, and because it’s shipped from the U.S…

best quality chain is form mcmaster-carr we have used it and have never had a problem with it, no breaks or snags

WM Berg has .250 pitch (25) sprockets in 2024 Aluminum from 9 to 54 teeth in standard tooth counts. They all have a 1/2" diameter hub and a 1/4" bore. The part number is 25EM26A-X where X is the tooth count. They are a little more expensive than steel sprockets but they’re really not too bad. They don’t appear to be well stocked though. On some tooth counts there is a lead time of like 2 weeks.

#35 chain - Northern Tool $10/box of 10 feet w/ one master link: http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_6970_200139474_200139474

#35 chain - Surplus Center $13/box of 10 feet w/ one master link: http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?UID=2006083100045742&item=1-1163-35&catname=powerTrans

#35 chain - Surplus Center various other types (double, stainless, etc.): http://www.surpluscenter.com/sort.asp?UID=2006083100045742&catname=powerTrans&keyword=PC35

#35 links - Surplus Center ($.35 master links, etc.): http://www.surpluscenter.com/sort.asp?UID=2006083100045742&catname=powerTrans&keyword=PL35

Surplus Center also has sprockets and other stuff cheaper than McMaster-Carr and MSC.

I have used the chain and links from Northern Tool and Surplus Center and it works fine. No failures at all. It is not Browning but doesn’t cost as much either.

BTW: Nothern Tool is also a good place for wheels and sprockets. Look around in their Go-Cart parts section.

Also, don’t forget a chain breaker like this: http://www.surpluscenter.com/item.asp?UID=2006083100045742&catname=powerTrans&item=14-1037

It is an invaluable “special tool” for any FIRST tool box!
