I was just wondering if I really needed a chainwhip to tightly secure a freewheel. If it's safe I'd rather just use the freewheel remover tool instead spending more money on a chainwhip. The only thing is that this freewheel is a little older and the splines on it don't seem as defined as on newer ones. Do you think I'll strip the splines if I try to tighten all the way with just the removal tool? Thanks.
