I was lucky enough to pick up some Tune cranks from a very nice guy - on here as it happens - vielen dank Marco.

The guy that he got them from, had had a go at stripping the black ano on one crank and then got bored.

They had potential - but needed the spider removing to do it properly.
So a chat with Wadsy, a few ideas bounced about - and we have a plan.
I leave the cranks with him and not long after, I get an email with some pics attached.

The Wads-Meister had worked some magic! I think it goes without saying, I was pretty pleased with what I saw.

Chapeau Wadsy!! What a star!
You have put a nice ray of sunshine in my otherwise dismal week. Thanks :)

So as bought they looked like this.

Nice one, Carge - looking very nice! So what's the preferred technique for spider removal? (and don't tell me it's a pint glass and a postcard!)

The pint glass and postcard is only for you animal lovers - rolled up newspaper does the trick for me ;)

According to Wadsy - it involved a vice and a couple of bolts.
