Home made cotter pin remover

I allready told you about the bicycle restorer's nightmare... The dammed cotter pin!!!
The thing is that reading and antique catalog i found this tool:

Almost impossible to find now a days I've decided to make it.

Simple and so long effective.


  1. Fucking cool! I'd done this before using a bench vise, but now I no longer have easy access to a bench vise, and my bottom bracket is making so many noises I fear for its life were I to ride it over to one. Gonna try this out tonight :)

  2. Hi Isaac! In case you do it don' take away the reinforcement. Just make a drill not touching the structure, cause it tends to blend or even crack....
