The spelling may not be important in most cases, but if you are doing a search for something, you will usually get more hits with correct spelling.
Actually, I was going to reply until the thread went off topic. I was looking for a freewheel vise, and some recommendations. I may just try a sacrificial hub, I have plenty of them. I'm thinking a steel hub might be best (need to pull a couple of wheel carcasses out of the trash, it goes out in the AM.)
Are you saying your "pee pee" is bigger than mine?
The first reply was a legitimate reply, regardless of the spelling error.
The second reply was a legitimate reply, stating that a spelling error had been made.
The third reply was again a legitimate reply, regardless of the spelling error.
The fourth reply was a playful reply to the second reply.
The fifth reply is a playful response to the fourth reply.
The sixth reply is a playful response to the OP while still presenting pertinent information.
The seventh reply is a link to an Ebay auction for the item requested by the OP.
The eighth reply is a reply to the Ebay auction, and making mention of the spelling error.
The ninth reply is a reply to the posted link in the seventh reply.
The tenth reply is a reply to the posted link in the seventh reply.
The eleventh reply is a direct reply to the OP in pertaining to the usefulness of the tool the OP was inquiring about.
The twelfth reply is yours- and contains no relevant information to the thread.
So out of the eleven replies before your post- eight were directly relevant to the topic of the thread regardless of the spelling error.
Out of three posts that focused upon the spelling error- the first post pointing out a spelling error had been made was a legitimate post- the OP would perhaps get better results, especially when dealing with homonyms. Especially when one thing means "an immoral habit or practice."
What you also may wish to take into account, most everyone that has posted in this thread has a post count in the thousands. Most of those posts have been racked up in the C&V forum. Most of these forum members are familiar with each other.
Sometimes when you look to get hurt, the chip stays on your shoulder, even when you believe someone knocked it off.
How's that for a clumsy, unwieldy mixing of metaphors?
To be a little more direct- if you "know" people on forums, you can **** around with them. Just like you can with your "real" friends.
If someone ****s with you- you have to decide if they're playing with you or they're maliciously ****ing with you.
If you get hurt because someone is playing with you- that's on you.
There are forums that are snobbish and not welcoming to "new" members- This is not one of them.
Chips are one of my biggest vices. So salty, so crunchy!
My God I've committed the unforgivable sin. I've offended an "expert". The pillow will be wet with tears tonight. But thank you for you're courteous reply. Apparently when you are an "expert" courtesy takes second place to reminding the "Lower Orders" of their place. Bravo Ed
Rudi, I stick to preaching a positive message and leave vice to Police Chief Dave. :o He agrees, we are each best suited for our respective jobs.
Timmy, the round end is inserted into the threaded end of the freewheel. The squared off end is inserted in the vise. when the vise is clamped shut the tool opens up inside the freewheel. Mine is aluminum and grips into the threads and holds the freewheel body tight allowing you to either remove or tighten the retaining bearing ring.
I don't believe a spanner would work, not even visegrips. Or is that Vise Grips? :notamused:
Of course! Putting it in the vise makes sense. (Putting in a vice, does not make cents .... or more simply put, crime doesn't pay.)
Then spin the wheel to get the freewheel off. I'd probably hit it with PBBlaster before I tried to turn it off, too.
Gracias, Bob. (so many bad puns..... so little space.)
There may be vises happening soon...my plane to Vegas leaves at 8:30am EST.
1) The freewheel needs to be removed from the wheel first.
2) The above vise is inserted into the the rear threaded part of the freewheel which would normally "mate" to the hub (oh there are so many ways this can now be turned into a vice like situation). :twitchy:
3) The freewheel vise is then clamped into the bench vise, which spreads the inserted "jaws." :eek:
This technique will not hold the freewheel cogs for loosening. This is the tool I use for the removal of the retaining/bearing ring (which has reversed threads). Maybe I need to take detailed pictures this evening?
