Been fixing rim dents with a vise and spacers and it gets em back on the trail (long as the hook isn't completely smashed down). Anyone found a tool other than that rim wrench?.. something that could crimp the radius back up into place would be nice

Maybe crimp was the wrong word. Was thinking of something that works like pliers except the top and bottom jaws in shape of bead hook profile.. squeeze together and stamp it back into shape.. anyway sounds like that wrench is perfect for the job so I'll try to find one. Thanks for the feedback

Hey Jerkface

The rim wrench DOES pull the radius back into place. Only problem is Paul Morningstar accidentally offed himself recently, so I don't know if you can buy one. Probably used ones on ebay. Great little tool.
My father didn't "Off himself". Next time try thinking about how other people might feel before you make a stupid remark.

While this has been stated before, I held an elevated respect and admiration for Paul. He was a very kind and generous guy who thought the world of those who loved bikes. He was a gifted man of unsurpassed passion for the bike and those who shared that same passion. While I never met Paul, I shared long conversations and exchanged emails with him. He was a source of genuine inspiration not only for me personally, but many others as well.

Shawn, I just saw his insensitive remark and I was going to tune him in but I see you did a fine job. There isn't a day go by that I don't think of your dad as we talked via e-mail daily; many times daily. Paul was one of the world's true characters and we're much worse off without him. My big regret is that we never met, rode together and shared some ideas in his workshop.

Anyone try making one of these? I see the Park rotor truing tool is pretty close. Can maybe do some simply mods to make it work better, so the corner isn't going into the exterior of the rim, and so there's a pocket to pull the rim out by the beadhook.

Hey Shawn, I was just thinking about your dad two days ago. We had lots of happy e-mails over many years. Almost daily. He saved the stamps from letters from all over the world and sent them to my wife. He was a special friend, truly cherished and very much missed.
Hi Mike, So good to hear from you on here. I'm very glad he and you had such a nice relationship. It seems like yesterday everything happened and he was gone too soon. take care, S
