I like the looks of that. From the pic it looks thicker than the ubiquitous Sugino BB tools.

I use that Hozan tool often. Yes, it's useful.

I also love Campy NR rear derailleurs. It is quite admirable. I started talking about it with my friend, showing it to him, and he said, "Do you need a minute?" How embarrassing.

I installed my Campy Rally derailleur on my daughter's bike last week and shipped the bike off to her in college. I hope I don't regret doing that. But she said the bike is awesome, so I got my due reward for my good deed. I bought that derailleur new in about 1976.

It was made in West Germany. It says, "Sancte Christophore - Iter Nostrum Protege" which means St. Chistopher - Protect Our Journey. It rings. Not much more to it.

I got mine out of Italy. I think I paid about $20, including shipping. What did the one you were watching go for?
That is what I was expecting when I watched the one on ebay. It's been about a year so I cannot remember the exact dollar amount... I want to say somewhere around 50 dollars.

The LBS I work at has one of these, and I love using it. It's a terrific tool.
