Which Freewheel Remover: Suntour 8.8.8. Single Speed

I have this freewheel


Suntour 8.8.8. 22T Single Speed Freewheel



and am looking for the proper remover. Will this one work?



Suntour Freewheel Remover

It looks like this could work for 2 different (but similar) spline types, one narrower and one wider, like mine?

It fits! It will be the latest entry in my freewheel remover collection, now 7 different types.



Thank goodness!

7? I think at last count I've got like 38 different types and versions in my freewheel tool drawer, and I know I don't have them all.

Awesome! I think I may still need a few more (for Sachs and Regina).

I must say, if you're one to care about such things, this remover feels very nice and heavy in the hand. While new Park Tool varieties (for relatively common freewheel types, unlike this one), work just fine, this remover (like Suntour freewheels), feels like it's in an entirely different league! Note the engraved concentric circles on top.

I've likely got a few that I'll never used again, some of the more obscure models from the 50's and 60's haven't been out of the drawer in a long time.
There's a few doubles but those are different variations of the same tool, Shimano has quite a few themselves.
I have a few without axle holes, meaning you have to pull the axle to use the tool. One is an early Suntour two pin. There's four or five Mailard/Atom tools, and a few I have that I've likely never used because they got handed down to me over the years by older guys who retired or from shop owners who had doubles.
I know I don't have all the single speed freewheel tools, but I've got a few oddball early ones though.
I don't think I've seen a TDC freewheel or an old Sturmey Archer in a while now, nor an old Cyclo freewheel.

No not the prongs on the tool are facing out an the freewheel has inside type prongs.

Hi, I am also looking for a 2 notch freewheel remover, notches on about 40mm. What is the dimension of this tool?

Might have to hut one out for myself?

thanks
