    Unfortunately this tool doesn't apply to 2 speed equipped hubs. 4560229779_892f361d41_b.jpg

    Just assemble your discs on your axle and alighn them then thread this tool on your axle and slide it through your hub.It makes putting togeather and rear hub a piece of cake.

    If you work on ND hubs, this is a great tool to have!

    I hope you sell your tool but a razor blade works just fine for me

    That isn't really the main use of this tool. That is only a secondary purpose. The main purpose is to hold all of the discs firmly in place as you slide the axle into the hub. Works great!
