Apparently I can't extract an ISIS crank for 5 cents

Buy an extractor for 15 bucks or try a go for 5 cents? 5 cents it is!

Result:






FAIL

Guess I'll be at the LBS tomorrow picking up another crank extractor for my collection (this will be the third)

Why didn't I think of trying that before I went out and bought another puller? Ah well. You could borrow mine, but I think I'm like a 3 hour drive away.

Prior to my nickel adventure I did just that and asked the LBS for an adapter. As usual they didn't come through though :-\

Maybe Ill try two nickels but a nickel but it wasnt so easy grinding down the first to get it to fit in


edit: I know who will have the adapter, Cambria Bike, I'll go venture on their way tomorrow. Since the extractors are so similar it just seems silly to have more than one

Since the Shimano plug tool comes with every 105 Octalink crank set, I'm surprised your LBS didn't have a few spares.

...or a steel fender washer (small holes).

Coins are made of nickle, copper and/or zinc, none of which are tool-quality metals.

Which goes to show.... it's not the tool, but the person behind it.
