I have also seen the original version of the tool in cast iron, cast bronze and cast aluminum, as well as a slick head-only that you could carry on the bike, and use with a lugnut or socket wrench handle... I thought I had a picture of that one, but cannot find it anywhere....

edit: found it! made by another ADV'r "HPMGuy"
This was the one I was thinking of! Guy rebuilt my drive shaft 10,000 miles ago and when I inspected it it was still looking brand new. I guess it'll come down to cost...

So if I do have to cut the nut, what's the procedure for getting the rest out? dremel hack-and-chop bit by bit??
