    Screwdriver and hammer work much better on that White Ind lockring than BB tools. The diameter is small and harder to get much torque on. Just ask all of my knuckles.

    Try to find a punch or something with more surface area. I have never owned a pair of their cranks, but I find that when tightening lockrings (like on my fixed gears) it is easier to get them torqued down tight if you can pin the tool against something and rotate the wheel. The frame works perfectly on one of my bikes. For the cranks, if you can get the tool on and rotate it around until it hits the chainstay, then apply pressure to the cranks it will keep the tool secure and allow you to tighten it further or easier. And since they are cranks you can use your leg

    He said he ordered one and was looking for some other method while waiting for it to arrive.
