    tool for WI eno freewheel

    I posted this question in another forum on another older thread but it doesn't seem to be getting any answers so I thought I'd try here....

    I bought a tool for my WI freewheel, but it doesn't quite fit Is there a tool you guys recommend? There seem to be a few out there but I am not sure which...I want to avoid spending $25 plus another $25-50 on postage. Thanks.

    The WI Eno tool is machined out to clear the eccentric axle. But if I remember correctly, the pronges are a little slimmer than some freewheel removal tools. I can check on this when I get home.

    if he is using an eno hub with his eno freewheel, then he can pull out the eccentric axle first then use the fr-6.

    Yup. You don't need the special freewheel tool to remove the ENO freewheel. OP, do you have the ENO hub or standard?

    Thanks for the responses everyone. Fishcreek...thanks if that is right it'll be an option I should be able to find. No, I just have the WI trials freewheel...it's going on a Paul word disc hub which is coming. Hope that helps.

    I've found a possible tool, but wanted to check with you guys first. Wiggle says it will fit, but knowing how communication works, a double check is a good idea. Benefits are that it is cheap, and it's likely I can bundle it in with a future purchase so won't have to pay postage.

    That's not going to fit. The prongs are too wide.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Thanks stevob...something a file can fix? The inside diameter seems to be the crucial measurement. When I measured the freewheel with callipers, even the park tool specs weren't prefect as the inside dia was about 2mm bigger than the freewheel. Would probably still work though.

    Absolutely a file could fix it. If you're prepared to give that a go.

    edit...the only thing is whether you can actually get a file to the face that needs filing. The other prongs may be in the way, depending on the thickness of the file.

    yeah...I've done much scarier stuff before. May be worth a try thanks for the input.

    Sorry if I missed it, but why not use the WI tool?

    his shop probably didn't have a WI tool available, so he picked up another freewheel tool but it doesn't fit the WI freewheel.

    I dropped the ball checking on my WI tool. I'll remember to do that tonight and report.

    The tool from Wiggle was $5 as opposed to $25 and he can bundle it with his next purchase and save more on shipping

    I have the Park FR-6 also, it should work, there is just enough (1.5mm) to catch the edge but you want to make sure the FR-6 is secure otherwise you will tweak the edge of the freewheel.
    The inner/outer diameter on the
    FR-6 is 32mm/40mm tooth width is 8mm
    the WI is 30mm /35mm tooth width is 8.5mm

    The WI freewheel inner is exactly 30mm and outer is 35mm. The WI tool is a snug fit. With the FR-6, there is some wiggle and the whole profile of the freewheel is not engaged.

    Thanks for the precise reply...takes the guess work out. As I guess I won't need to take the freewheel off in a hurry...unless I screw something up...I'll wait for the bundling option I think. The WI tool looks nice but for $5 I may take a punt on Wiggle. I was told by Universal Cycles that the ACS is the other good option, but they have been out of stock for some time. Same reason I didn't get my Paul hubs through them which is a pity.

    If the Wiggle tool doesn't fit at least as well as the Park, I'll probably search out the ACS. Cheers.

    Acutally yes I was hoping to just file the non working edge but that may not work.
