If anyone (in Britain) can lend me or loan me the Royce BB tool I'd be most grateful!
Bought a Royce Bottom Bracket, but no tool to fit it/screw it in.
On the Royce site it'll cost me close on £40 or so, but no point in buying it to use it only ONCE!

So if anyone can help, I'll pay postage of course

You can use the green Park Tools peg spanner.

You won't have nearly as much control over the holes though and you need to be very careful indeed.

I've fitted all 4 of mine with this tool - but I will be getting the right tool at some point.

thanks mate, can you possibly link the spanner?
I've searched and all I found was a Park Tools Pin spanner

Same thing.
Spa-1 is the green one.
Spa-2 is the red one which fits hope bb's and hope disc spider lock rings.

Does the job as long as you are careful and keep some pressure at the head of the tool so the pins stay engaged.
