    Typically, I tighten the DS cone/locknut much tighter than the NDS.
    When I want to service the bearings, I remove the NDS cone/locknut and pull the axle out the DS.
    I simply never remove the DS...

    IF it has trigger shifters, pry them open slightly enough to flush with WD-40.
    It's a common "fix".
    Flush, manipulate, flush, manipulate and you're usually good to go.

    Maybe "somebody" should have asked a basic, simple question-
    "What size wrenches do I need to work on my bike"?

    If you look at the title of the thread, it pretty much reinforces post #27 .

    So, what IS a "bolt gauge"?

    If you have many bikes, you should have enough experience to know which one you want.
    You just need to pay attention to what you use and where.

    Other than Allen type bolts, NOPE.
    The fact you are asking that kind of question kind of begs "what are you going to do with a thread gauge"?
    It seems you are trying brain surgery before you've...

    How'd you get the first arm off?
    IF it came off by itself, your crank is the problem, not the BB unless it's also coincidentally bad.

    Are you going to use the much larger sizes? 24mm is nearly 1"! (25.4mm)
    Bicycles will pretty much use 4-8mm with a 10mm in the free hub. You don't need a gauge for the 10mm since it's a proprietary...

    I friend put a 27x1-3/8 on the rear of his bike.
    He has to deflate the tire to remove the wheel.
    Not a problem if he has a flat, but he has to install the wheel before he can pump it back up.

    Sure you could.
    However, some smaller sizes are so close you wouldn't be sure.
    For example, I've got a 5mm nut screwed on each of my 5mm X .8 and 10-32 gauges.
    One fits well and the other is a bit...
