I have this thing where I have to take the cogs off of a vintage freewheel body.

Not having a freewheel cog holder, I generally nail through the holes in the larger cogs to loosen the sprockets. Has worked most every time, except on one corncob.

My remedy was to have a two pieces of 2" thick timber with a hole drilled so that when put side by side, the hole could surround the hub.

I then nailed 1" nails into the spoke holes into the timber so that the hub was then bonded to the timber.
