>>>>http://ebay.com/<blah> 20618594 Uh, this is a bit excessive, I think (and it's not even finished yet). I sell these for $24 NOS..... Greg "whoa" Parker<<<<<<<

Damn boy. Maybe you should throw a couple of those things on eBay with, say, a starting price of $24, and see what happens. Ya never know.

Being a non-conformist by nature, I use an OFMEGA "peanut butter" wrench, which brings me to my question. The Ofmega wrench, unlike the Campy one-piece design, uses a two piece construction method, whereby the 15 mm "socket" is a separate piece affixed to the handle with a spring clip. Does this mean that there were other size "sockets" that could be interchanged? Is anyone familiar with this wrench and it's variables? Also, I suspect that the wrench was really for crank bolts, or maybe and/or axle nuts. Does anyone know? Was Campy's PB wrench originally intended as a tool for axle nuts or just another one's of Campy's multi-use tools?

Just curious. I can't help it. Sort of comes with the territory when you're a "tool guy".
