How to remove stubborn freewheels

I need lots of leverage!
Chain tools are useless. Can’t get enough leverage. Broke it and had to reattach the chain.

This strap a wheel to a post was used to pull a bend out of a rim in an ebook. You strap the bent rim against a post and try to roll the wheel down the post. Loosen spokes near the bend. Roll the wheel down the post pulls the bent part of the rim out.

Figured this might work for removing freewheels. You need a freewheel or cassette removal tool (socket) specific to your gear train. This is a Shimano Mega Range Freewheel. you’ll need a large crescent wrench with a long 8 ft pipe over the handle. Stubborn freewheels and cassettes come off real easy this way.
