Hello Everyone. I ruined a pair of Ofmega cranks the other trying to remove them, in my defense however the threads were not correctly done by the manufacturer. you could see where the threads were only originally tapped about half the norman depth.
I came across this fabulous tool but at $200 it is a bit pricy for fixing this crank set. has anyone ever seen one? do you know a shop/home mechanic who has it?
it appears the way it works is it works as a tap and cuts new threads then removes the crank. there is a companion single key release/extractor that is intended to be used afterward.
if anyone knows where one of these tools is in use I would certainly be willing to pay a few hard earned Rubles to have mine tapped.
