I also use the Park Tool FR-1.

Are you sure that it is Shimano?

Are you sure that it is a freewheel? Could it be a cassette? Or a fixed gear cluster as used with the Shimano front (BB) freewheel system?

The FR-1 does not fit the fixed Shimano gear cluster used with the bottom bracket (crank) mounted freewheel. I ended scrapping out the wheel after spoke failure on the drive side, and am using a conventional freewheel. Having freewheels front and rear is somewhat interesting.

A picture is worth a thousand words.....

Sure a picture is worth more than a thousand words:

That looks like a "freewheel" to me and needs a different tool.

The tool looks similar to the cassette tool but is slightly different?

The number of splines and depth need to be matched.
