What options, apart from a chain, are there for a compact flywheel holder? I've seen one at Rich Presley, is it any good or are there other alternatives?

i have one
although handle section that is seperate was too heavy for me
so replaced with some steel tube from work
shorter and slides over outside of stubby piece on main part

works well

Good job I saw you then fella ;) ;) Never forget how hungover David and Rob looked. Oh and the Tv that twisted its crank just pottering down past us...
Anyway Mikes got a point, I had to carry a magnetic tank bag full of tools / spares, and the flywheel holder is one of the biggest tools in the essential set so to speak.

Thanks for the input. My garage flywheel holder has a handle of steel box section, it might be an idea to cut it in half and fit a joining piece. I could then cut off the three prong side that I dont use and that should lighten it a bit too :idea:

Trouble with that one is that the prongs are flat so it slips off the flywheel too easily, the slots need lugs on them to lock into place.
