    if you slacken the other bolt off it won't tighten the one you're trying to undo, it will take the strain off.

    you want them equal when doing up, won't matter when being undone.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the other one was over tightened and caused stress on the rounded one, making that too tight.

    I doubt it’s the wrong cone. My front hubs are exactly the same. I think it’s form over function

    on another note though, bit more seriously, I have a mate like this (not seen him in 8 years) but he didnt like people and actively unsociable, worked nights so he wouldn't be near people, he looked like Mr Burns and he was only in his early twenties.

    anyway, without elaborating too much, as I got older and working in children's social services, I had a better understanding of all the stuff that happened to him when we were in school; like he had been in and out of foster care, his mum was a maniac and beat up our headteacher, some other weird stuff went on.

    he was basically living in an abusive household and this had affected him to the point where he didnt want to be around people at all and I was the only person really keeping up with him. it got to the same point though where he just wouldn't turn up to things any more and that was that. shame as he was a real nice and normal bloke once you were past the weird persona everyone else saw. could easily be labeled with autism but he was just screwed up.

    just saying this as people often say stuff about being on a spectrum, but there is shit loads of neglectful and abusive parenting going on behind closed doors and it deeply affects people in adulthood. I see scores of it in my 9-5, but you would never realise if you were not aware of the extent of it.

    just something to consider as your mate may have had some trauma which has lead him to behave the way he does.

    I suspect you may be right, he's probably happy and doesn't give a shit.

    I do things my way, you can stick around if you want or fuck off/ kind of thing

    It may do, give it a try. It’s a nondestructive and quick way of doing it. Plus it doesn’t bugger up your tools

    I wouldn’t know that off the top of my head but I do know Campagnolo loose bearing hubs and headsets etc can be pretty wacky and can have different bearing sizes on each side and that kind of thing, so you do need to make sure you get it right.

    This looks like a good source of info to answer your question but I would cross reference it with somewhere else to make sure it’s correct. And get your verniers out to be double sure

    thanks, I have just got another sewing machine which I've modified slightly and some new fabric, going to make another bag but with some changes on the first one

    take the strain off with the other bolt as stated above.

    but to get the rounded head bolt out, get some valve grinding paste in there with the Allen key, that will help it bite and should remove it with less fuss. grinding paste is also known as lapping paste. works with rounded screw heads too.

    having an imperial set of keys to hand can also help, as they might fit the rounded hole slightly better.

    I've got some shamals with these hubs and just had a look, theres no chance of getting anything in there, you just have to get the cap off. I popped it off by sticking something in the gaps I seem to remember.

    this is the specific tool for the job, https://www.euroasiaimports.com/ProductC­art/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=11421&idcat­egory=1732

    you could probably find a cheaper puller of some kind or make your own.

    for reference, these are campagnolo c record hubs, if you want to do some more research you might find a bit more

    I always thought that was a dust cap and the hole was there to help pop it off. Can’t see why you would oil anything in that part and it would help you get to the cones.

    They definitely come off. I’ve rebuilt 2 pairs of these hubs in the last couple of years and that part was removed from what I remember
