The dishing tool appears identical to the one that came in my tool kit I bought new, directly from Campagnolo in 1984. The freewheel tools are also identical, and I remember being disappointed because they were the old version of the tool, designed to fit old 2-prong Regina freewheels, rather than the new tool with the helical prongs for Campy's own freewheel which had recently been released.
