EMPI Impact spanner for large nuts!

File:EMPI Axle Nut Tool.JPG

This is a short but beefy wrought steel impact spanner that has a face designed to be thumped with a club hammer. The spanner fits over the T2/T3 rear 46mm hub nuts with single-hex faces and provides adequate surface area to 'shock' the nut loose. Works well, needs to be hit with at least a 2 1/2 lb club, 4 lb better, and may need holding onto nut as it is struck (leather gloves useful!). Half a dozen good whacks later, nut should be loose. NB. These castellated split-pinned nuts are designed to be replaced
