Show Us Your Campagnolo Tools

My collection is pretty modest, though I use most of these pretty regularly. What have you got?

One of my memories from working at Euro-Asia Imports was walking past a stack of Campagnolo tool kits nearly as tall as I am. I wonder how many are still there.

Good little article: https://jimlangley.net/wrench/campagnolotoolkit.html

I really like those all wood cases.
the switch to plastic happened in the 70's.
The shop for which I worked bought a kit in 1975 and it had the plastic tray.
the questioned tool I think is a handle- maybe for the fixed cup tool?
the business side of that has vice flats and a cheater bar, the other side as I recall has a transverse hole set in the tubular body.
i would have to go to work and verify but that is what I recall.

+1. the questioned tool in post #7 is the cheater bar for tightening the retainer the nut onto the fixed cup tool. The fixed cup tool was the 2nd and last Campagnolo tool that I bought. The plating on it was very fragile and started flaking off after the first use. The VAR tool is far superior in all aspects; price, ergonomics, versatility. workmanship, etc.

I still have my original Paramount toolset with the plastic pouch...its somewhere in the garage, at least I hope so, that's why no pics.
Best, Ben

So, it's a tommy-bar for tightening part 793/3 onto the shaft? That makes sense, I guess, but I've never found a need to have it more than hand tight.



The fixed cup tool was the 2nd and last Campagnolo tool that I bought. The plating on it was very fragile and started flaking off after the first use. The VAR tool is far superior in all aspects; price, ergonomics, versatility. workmanship, etc.
I've not had any problems with the plating on my 793/A tool. But I will agree that the VAR-30, with its multiple jaws for fitting different fixed cup designs, is a much more versatile tool.

After I posted, I recall my grandfather would call the tool a tommy bar.

Thanks for drawing my attention to Jim Langley's piece about that kit.
That's the very kit that I used when employed at The Bicycle Center a couple years before Jim! I wondered where it went.

You're making me feel old!

Now, I have to wonder when Campagnolo stopped including the tommy-bar with the tool cases. Curiously, the tommy-bar doesn't seem to appear in any of the Campagnolo catalogs and doesn't seem to have a part number.

Good question- the plastic insert had a provision for it but also for the small tub of Campagnolo grease.

I'd love their wheel dishing tool, a friend of mine has the VAR version, which seems to be the same.
Compared to the Park Tool WAG-4 they're heavenly to use.

I have all that are shown in the first two pics, headset and BB tools, pedal wrench, T handle, crank bolt wrench, and a dishing tool, etc. But when I obtained all of those I don't think this tool was available, so I think it's an 80's tool. But what a lifesaver.
Pedal tool for holding the lower, large nut in place against the outboard cone of the Record pedal while you tighten the small outer nut. Thin walled and offset head. Just a perfect design, as are most of Campagnolo's tools.


Jumped on this about ten years ago when I saw it. I haven't seen many of them.

Glad you brought this one up. Campy pedal cone wrench 7130023.

There was one on efbay last month? that went for $60.

I had a pedal that the locknut was so tight it wiped the tab off the washer taking the locknut off since I couldn't hold the cone.

Going to make my own out of a socket with some dremeling and a wrench tacked on the outside.
