Very cool. Chain breaking has always been a cool feat. Dangerous too. 

Any idea how much force it takes to break the chain?

I searched and found the "Safe Working Load" for a particular brand single jack #8 was 88lbs, but that will probably vary depending on the material too.  "Safe Working Load" is an insurance/liability thing too, the chain should be able hold quite a bit more.

This is a great chart I came across when I was experimenting with breaking chains a while ago. 

#8 single jack chain has a minimum breaking force of 240lb

Very cool feat! Thank you for sharing!

88 only? Never! He can just hook the chain and add weights to it downwards. 88 pounds is too low

240 pounds is more realistic
