    When you say "hub thing", I'm assuming you mean the cassette or the freewheel body itself? You probably need a Park Tool FR-4 freewheel remover tool. You can probably find other brands as well.

    Park Tool Co. FR-4 : Freewheel Remover : Freewheel & Cassette

    Most LBS should carry it but it may not carry the specific one that you need. You can find it on Amazon as well

    This is like a "G-spot" question.

    "Can someone help me find the tool i need?" How many pornos start that way?

    You also need a chain whip in addition to the cassette tool. Keeps it from spinning.

    No chainwhip necessary, that's a freewheel. Shakester was close but OP will need the FR-1 for Shimano.

    As opposed to a freehub? I guess it's been a while since I saw a freewheel. Sorry for the bad info, OP.
