| I took a look at this tool this Mark Stonich fellow was talking about. This is THE TOOL to remove the bottom bracket fixed cups as well as the adjustable cup.|
The block fits over the cup and it has a large square surfact that you use a long wrench to slowly and properly remove the stubborn fixed cup.
This is awesome. He's got a nice web page and well, I'm very, very pleased to see this.
| I sent him an email saying that I'm interested. Looks very nice.|
| I got more positive feedback on this tool than I did for the cotter presses. So I decided on a production run of 40 units. |
I did change the design, which MAY force me to raise the price a buck or two. The distance between the flats on these cups is nominally 5/8" of an inch, 0.625". However, some are a bit over that, and the tool works best with a snug or even slightly interference fit. So, I'm having Todd put a slot on both faces of the tool, one 0.625" wide and the other 0.629" wide.
I'll post an update when they are available. I'll offer a $5 discount to anyone buying both the BB tool and a cotter press.
| I WANT ONE. USE A GOOD, HARD AS YOU CAN GET,QUALITY STEEL SO THE TOOL DOES NOT WEAR OUT AS QUICKLY AS MINE DID.|
| They will use 4140, same as my prototype. I've used mine for a couple of years and it's good as new. Having two slots will ensure a better fit so it should be quite durable. |
| I think that a special tool to do this job is a great help. I have been able to remove fixed cups on Raleigh. I use an adjustable wrench held on by 2 washers and a nut & bolt. I originaly used a vise in place of the wrench. The hardness of the steel wrench is important. I finally found a quality adjustable wrench. This one is just as hard as the cup. A super garage sale deal for $3. Ed|
| I hear what you are saying but nothing beats a real proper tool for the job and this tool of Mark's is really top shelf.|
Now all we need are spare N.O.S. fixed and adjustable cups!
| I have a few if you need. I don't have the adjustable side. $20 each. Ed|
