Regina CX freewheel remover tool still exists?

I need to remove a Regina CX 6 spd freewheel off a set of Record-hubbed wheels I acquired.
I want to see if overhauling it can salvage the CX.

Park's FR-4 tool is supposedly Regina compatible, but I read it doesn't fit the CX line.
Anyone have CX experience? And know of a compatible tool that's still available for sale?

TIA!

Does the CX use the same spline system as the Regina America?

If needed, you can always destructively remove it. Sort of fun really. And watching all those tiny bearing balls fall on the floor reminds you why no mortal should every try to rebuild a freewheel.

I don't want to destroy the CX, its cogs look good still, it's just a bit gritty. I'd like to clean it up to see if it'll spin smooth. Then keep it for an all-Italian build.

I've disassembled a Shimano free-hub body once. That wasn't so bad I thought. But it's probably a lot easier than most old freewheels.

I'm uncertain if CX and America freewheels are similar. This is my first Regina freewheel experience.
I've always stubbornly stuck to Suntour freewheels in the past.

That's great! Thanks for the info. I'll hunt one down then.
Funny, I read it here on BF that the Park didn't fit. Go figure.

If you're referring to my avatar, yes. That's a Normandy rear hub from a circa late 70s Peugeot.
A high school friend tossed the wheels in 1980, I salvaged them by swapping on Mavic Module 3 rims.
I ran on them for several years. I still have the front wheel and the rear hub in my possession after all these years.

FWIW, I just checked a CX, America and Extra. Both tools I have fit all of them. Unfortunately both tools are unmarked.

What you really want to find is the thin walled Phil Wood remover. With the Park on some hubs you need to disassemble the hub to get the freewheel remover in there. The thin walls of the Phil that is not an issue. One on Ebay

I believe that ad is wrong. It says 24 splines - I'm thinking 20. I have one from Bicycle Research, only mine is brass. For what trivia-value it's worth.

You are correct. The only issue with the Phill Wood tool is the possibilty of twisting due to the thin side walls. I vaguely remember shearing one off back in the day.

For the occasional removal 'twisiting' shouldnt be an issue.

That is what one of mine is, thanks Matt!
