    If the spoke is the proper length, the head supports the spoke and the barrel of the nipple is along for the ride.

    I tend to add specialized tools as I need them.
    For a basic set, I'd get-
    Metric wrenches from about 4-17MM.
    I set open end and 1 set box end. That gives 2 of each size.
    1 set of hex wrenches 4-8...

    If it tightened by pedaling, what would be the point of a fixing bolt?
    You're confusing Free Wheels & Free Hubs.

    You might reserve the term "pie plate" for the spoke protector and the largest cog as the largest cog.
    Some older spoke protectors are noticeably larger than the largest cog.

    I apply PO a few times in the preceding day before attempted removal.
    I haven't done a lot of cotters, but so far my C clamp and an old rear axle spacer have worked.

    One thing I don't see mentioned is tire pressure & your weight.
    IF you have the front tire pumped to max, it may be too hard, which will transmit more "road buzz" to your hands.

    I don't see where you specified the number of "speeds" that your chain is.
    IF 8 or less, you can push the pin back. 9 or more, you risk failure doing that.

    You probably don't want a 15mm axle???

    Google "cartridge bearing"

    You haven't stated if the rear is 130 or 135mm spacing.

    One problem is the threads will likely be corroded to some extent and you can't get a good "feel" of the tension.

    Look for a METRIC rim size on the tire.
    26X1-3/8" came in 590 & 597MM diameters.
    590 is MUCH more common, but Schwinn used a 597MM.
    That 7MM difference makes nearly 1" on the circumference. (about...

    If you bent the RDER over 90*, you can pretty much count on having to replace it.
    They just don't bend back correctly.

    I definitely wouldn't ride it until serviced.
    It might make the difference in cost between a bit of grease & new bearing balls vs a new hub and wheel rebuild.

    There's about 2.2 turns per MM, so it sounds like you are bottomed out. (56 TPI)
