I thought I posted this the last time I called upon this handy tool, but couldn't find the thread. While mocking up a bike the other day, I found a busted and wedged piece of the old stem down inside the fork. I soaked it for a couple of days in penetrating spray and still wouldn't budge. I was about to use fire when I remembered a tool I put together using a long seatpost bolt, a couple of washers and the weight from a busted dent puller. Threaded the bolt into the wedge down inside the fork, carefully put the fork in a vise and gave that sucker a few good "WAAAPS!" and she was free! Sorry, no before pics.

So you were hammering the wedge upwards? :eek: Is that called reverse psychology?
