I removed the retaining bolt from the derailleur and turned it back and forth in the hole. Then I made a chasing tool of sorts from the shaft of a used pop rivet. I twisted one end into a handle of...

That will be a lot of work though, so any other suggestions are still welcome. Wish I had a lathe.

Looks pretty handy :thumb: All in one collection of essential side box parts. The sort of top-opening mailboxes we use around here would make perfect weatherproof "side bags". That's an inspiring...
