Does the job!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cyclo Cassette Remover Shimano Hg (Sports)
This does exactly what it says it does and is of reasonably high quality. However, I'd like to see a version with an insert for a torque wrench.
I had to buy a 26mm socket to use with it, which surprisingly wasn't that easy as all of my local car parts / DIY stores only stocked 24mm or 27mm. Luckily I ended up finding some in a Swedish hardware chain store with the initials CO.

Re: buying a 26mm socket to drive this tool, I do a fair bit of cycle mechanics, and most of the freewheel removal tools I've come across fit into a 1" AF socket - fractionally smaller than 26mm. Might be easier/cheaper to get than a 26mm? It's also possible to clamp the tool in a bench vice and turn the wheel to remove the freewheel cluster - no socket necessary!

Or just use an adjustable spanner? Why over complicate it?

Mr. R. Garcia says:
It's pretty complicated to measure torque with an adjustable spanner. It's doable, but somewhat more simple to just use a standard torque wrench. (Obviously this only matters when using the tool to put the cassette back on)

Also, adjustable wrenches slip - I try to avoid using them unless there's nothing else that fits. I'd always be happier using a socket wrench.
