The FR-4 works with the later, splined Regina bodies. The older Regina bodies used a two-prong remover that was prone to stripping out with careless use. Sometime around the mid-70's Regina switched to a splined body using the same pattern Zeus and Atom had been using. This is a much nicer design than the older body. Phil Wood and Zeus both made thin-wall tools that worked well with all these freewheels (Zeus, Atom, and Regina).
