Park HCW11
#1
Does anyone know if anybody other than Park produces a 16mm BB wrench like this one?

I'm not likely to use it more than once a year which makes the Park one pretty expensive.

Alternatively, any ideas how to get the old Raleigh BB off? I've tried a 16mm open wrench and an adjustable but both just slip.

Do not know where you are. But if "Liquid Wrench" is available in hardware store get it spray the threads and let soak overnight. Tap it a few times to help penetrate.

Wipe clean. Than if you have a large adjustable wrench try again, hold wrench tight against bracket. Do not round corners. Put solid end so that the pull/push is against it and not the adjustable end.You can give it a tap with a hammer, but hold tight against bracket. Someone can help with the hammer while you hold it tight..

Nifty gadget. Hmmm if you are having difficulty holding the wrench in than a threaded rod and some large washers and nuts would help, like with this tool. Providing you already have he crank out.

Good point, would have been nice if there was some sort of handle that came with to go right over the block. But it doesn't matter if the crank is out or not. The block part goes right over the crank as the crank spindle becomes the piece of all thread pictured.
