Anyone made a tool for pulling the caps off of C-record hubs? If so, please post a picture or tell what you made. THANKS!!!
Campag made the correct tool to remove C-Record hub dustcaps.

You can find those on eBay if you search "Campagnolo" and down at the bottom of the results are items offered in "eBay Stores"
These things sell for a mint on eBay. The last one I was watching went for over a hundred and the one I'm currently watching is over 35 with a few hours left. Good thing Ken at Major Taylor velodrome had the tool lying around and was willing to adjust my cones because **** was blowing up!
Don't tell the blokes in Britain because you usually pick them up at swap meets for 10GBP.

Here's the trick of the day. Works everytime. I have had C records since they were introduced.
Use a park cone wrench, or something of that thickness -- stick in the line between the dust cap and hub body and twist gently. Go to the other side and repeat, off it comes, piece of cake. If you're careful, you won't even scratch them.
Now you can send me the $100.
