    Freewheel vise or 2 chain whips?

    I'm planning to remove the cogs from my Suntour Pro-Compe freewheel. I'm sure they're going to be tight; the freewheel itself was a real pain to get off. Would it be best to try to do this with two chain whips, or with one chain whip and a freewheel vise? I'm planning to use at least one Park SR-1 chain whip, but instead of buying another one I'm considering this Freewheel Cluster Vise or maybe even this Cluster Vise Business Card Holder (it would be fun to keep one of these on my desk with my business cards in it).

    Which approach is more likely to work on an old freewheel that probably has never had its cogs removed since they were installed sometime in the '80s? Does anyone here any experience with this particular freewheel vise?

    Chain whip will always come in handy if you plan on working on your own wheels you'll also want to get the correct Freewheel Remover check to see if you have an older Sun Tour two notch freewheel or a Sun Tour four notch freewheel
    It may not be fancy but it gets me were I need to go.

    I have the correct freewheel remover (it's the two-notch type) and have had the freewheel off once already. I also have one chain whip. Would there be a benefit to having another one, besides using it to remove the cogs from the freewheel body?
