Hi all and thanx in advance for any feedback.
Pictured is a block that I cannot get a removal tool onto and does not appear to have any pin holes to remove the cogs from the freewheel body. The notch's have a diameter much larger than any removal tool I own and is similar in size to a Shimano bottom bracket tool however the notches don't match. All I can think of apart from trying to manufacture a tool is to take a cold chisel to the notches and start tapping. Any other ideas?

Is it a Maillard Normandy freewheel? I think I count 12 splines in the half that's visible...

Short of getting the right tool, it's pretty much cold chisel and hammer, or take the freewheel to bits as per the video.
He's got the Stillson the wrong way round IIRC - the jaws are opening up as he pushes.

The Stilson are correctly positioned as he undoing anti-clockwise, thus closing the jaws together... ;)
Didn't seem to look that way, but it's been a while.
