Morning all, does anyone have a 3 arm puller to remove a crank arm that's stripped?
Or any other tool that will do the job?
I saw this and it looks easy enough https://youtu.be/jrpIoXxVyTs?t=193
this is the product https://www.amazon.co.uk/Universal-Gear-Puller-indoor-outdoor/dp/B009FDC80I
I can come to you with a frame and do it there and then if that's easier.
If it’s not extremely stuck on, and you don’t mind risking the crankset and BB, you can try applying liberal amounts of penetrant WD40 and then gently hitting the crank arm outward with a mallet, on the underside of the arm. If that doesn’t work, you can wipe off the excess fluid and apply heat to the crankset with a hair dryer or boiling water, then tapping the crankset again. It’s sometimes enough to loosen it off.
Edit-small auto shops might have a gear puller and might be willing to have a go for £
I'll wait and see if I can get it off with a tool before I consider heat and sacrificing it.
I have something less finesse and bit more crude - a wedge which you slide between the crank arm and the BB and hammer down. It lives at the bottom of my tool box in SE1 and you're happy to have it but it needs to be returned before the sun sets... ;)
Sounds good mate, will pm
Hey, Im looking for a splined bb tool and a regular crank puller in london if anyone has some i can pick up asap! based in n15. Thanks
Got both of these you’re welcome to use, I’m in E10.

Bit of a longshot but does anyone have the castle tool and SPA-1 park tool pliers for servicing Headshok forks?
Sounds useful. Make it yourself?
Already have one and @srocha (thanks for the beers!) witnessed it in action! ;)
