Yes the TDC tool has three equally spaced extensions. Some of the freewheels also have a slot for a normal two prong remover. Find an old shop and they will perhaps have the tool, if they can find it.

If you don't want the freewheel, there is always the dissassemble and put the body in a vise option.

TDC was a very old cycle fittings company, going back to the 1880s, but only went out of business fairly recently. Probably the best product of CR interest was the headset.
