Need a 15mm Allen key for the freehub body on a 142x12 Shimano hub.
Has anybody seen such a thing online.
Also need tip to getting the freehubbody off .... Hub is not build to rim , and I have a feeling that once i find the 15mm Allen , that body is screwed onto the hubshell pretty tight.
So any ideas as to how I can get a grib on the hubshell , (without lacing it to a rim) ....
Cheers

impact wrench if its not laced. you can use a junk rim and spokes to put a rim on it. doesn't even need to be tensioned/built up proper

any sears hardware will carry the 15mm in their glass case. Also check Fastenal and McMaster Carr for quick shipping.

I've wrapped hubs in an old tube and then put them in a vise when I needed to get the freehub out of an unbuilt wheel. This has always worked.

I believe it's a 14mm as well. Shimano makes one but it's nothing special. I made one using an old square tapper BB and a hex bolt. I cleaned the axle and bolt really well and installed the bolt with locktite 690 bering retaining compound on it so it's not going anywhere. I've only had to use it a couple of times and it does show some wear already but for as little as I need to use it it's worked pretty well.
