    That depends on which BB tool you have. If it has an end that looks like the tool pictured below and fits, you can use it.

    I assume you mean a BB lockring spanner, and yes you can, but it's not a good fit. I've damaged fixed cog lockrings when I used a BB lockring spanner, because it does not fit flush in the notch. Over the long run, you'll be better off getting a proper cog lockring spanner, such as the one made by Hozan.

    on a side note the hozan wrench is just wide enough that can also be used to flip burgers in a pinch if you're grilling in the middle of nowhere and forgot a spatula

    You can use a Trixie as well, but the burgers won't be suitable for a NJS-sanctioned event.

    Er, if you have the Park HCW-17 like Scrod posted, then that IS the correct spanner for fixed cog lockrings.
