I'm surprised people are still hitting things with hammers that close to wings and spokes. I've always used the Moss wrench and fabbed an extension for stubborn KO's and it has always worked. The wrench stows invisible behind the spare. What am I missing other than the vintage "feel" and process?

>> The originals in Healeys were size ones, and either have the patent number or not depending on year, as per the 2017 Concours guidelines. But I use a heavier size two for spinner whacking, and have an unused size 1 for display purposes.
