If you want to run a decent-capacity blaster, you need to start looking at oil-lubricated, 220V models. That steps you up into the middle range of capacity and, unfortunately, price. It's worth it.

How tight should installing the link pin be?

It's not going in without force -should I hammer it in (lightly) or file the holes in the lug (in lieu of buying the Brownell's Link Reamer)?
