    Freewheel vices...any sources?

    I'm looking for a few freewheel vices. Back in my shop days we had the Bicycle Research tool and another of which I dont remember the name. It was to hold the body only, it was held by a vice and when tightened down upon it expanded and held onto the threaded are of the body. I cant even find pics of this vice...

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    I see them on ebay on occasion, but folks want more than I am willing to pay.

    I use a piece of a 2 X 6 and use wood screws to hold the freewheel tight. I clamp the 2 X 6 into my vise. Works great.

    You'll have better luck if you search for vises.

    The freewheel's main vice is its propensity for breaking rear axles. I do have an old SunTour cog vise, which I use w/ a chain whip.

But, I can't seem to get to clamp down enough to keep the body from spinning under the leverage of the chainwhip.



    The internal part of this vise is threaded, so it appears to lock in, but that's theory and not actual experience.

    I've always found a rear wheel to be the best convenient mounting for the freewheel body during rebuilding, and especially during chain-whip cog removal.
    I had broken one of the two chain whips I had by trying to remove cogs from an un-mounted freewheel, since the freewheel would flop sideways forcefully enough to pop the whip's chain riveting.
    And when tightening the freewheel body's lockring (cone), the wheel-mounted freewheel body is held solid.
    I still always use and recommend LocTite on the cone/lockring threads.

    Nothing like a misspelling to bring the s.hits and giggles crowd out of the woodwork. When you have nothing relevant to say you can always ridicule others. Ed

    The vise/vice distinction is a north american thing. The rest of the world uses the word vice in every sense of the word. See tire/tyre, defense/defence, etc.

    I don't believe that what you're seeing here is ridicule. I'd describe it more as good-natured wise-assery.
    For some reason, those who can spell think correct spelling is important. Those who can't spell don't believe that correct spelling is important. That's the way of the world.
    Having said that, I have been frustrated several times at the impossibility of editing forum titles, since an unfixable typo makes the poster appear to be spelling-impaired even when that is not the case.

    Vice. Vise. An easy mistake to make. I do it. Doesn't bother me none. I have several of each.
    The one that rubs me is then and than.

    This one is good for clamping a freewheel in a vise in order to use a chain whip to remove cogs. It will also hold it for removing the retaining ring.

    Reminds me of the old Bevis and Butthead episode when Beavis was taking a lie detector test. It went something like this:

    Cop: How much is 2 + 2?
    Beavis: Heh heh 5.... the light blinks green indicating correct answer)
    Cop: Well, since you think it was the right answer...

    So if I though I was spelling it right does that mean I spelld it wrong?

    This is the tool:

    I have a variation on that tool. I've been thinking about asking ftwelder if he can copy it.
