Subject: [CR]need freewheel removal advice

Well boys and girls, I just did something so incredibly idiotic I can only laugh at myself, in a sad sort of way. In the past I have been amazed when I have seen or heard of somebody doing this same exact thing. How dumb can you get, I remember thinking. After 40 plus years of working on bicycles I finally did it.

Here goes, I'll just blurt it out.....I cut a hub out of a wheel before I took the freewheel off. There, I said it.

Yup. Stupid, huh. Go ahead, laugh, get it over with......okay, done?? Now comes the advice part. Any suggestions on how to get the darn freewheel off without having to lace it into a hub again? For some reason I am not getting any hits when I do an archive search, so I turn to the collective wisdom.

I have been riding and working on freehubs for so long that in my haste I forgot I was working on a freewheel hub.

Thanks for any help or references.
