what extractor is it ?

i used one that had the look of dubious quality to it and sure enough the end snapped and it started to screw itself into the bottom bracket :roll:

to be fair your being slightly vague :lol: has any alloy from the crank been shed ?

did it go tighter before locking ?

may be irrelevant but hasn't been mentioned yet: did you take the washer out before screwing the puller in?

What cranks is it ?, your Cooks ones :shock: , aren't those supposed to be made of cheese masquerading as alloy ?

I remember a mate had a set of dog bone Cooks BITD that he used to batter on and off with a mallet cause the treads in the centre were minced, those were only about a year old at the time.

Sorry this is little consolation buddy , i'd be tearing my hair out :(

Incredible news
I took them to the bike mech who preformed a miracle removal in about 4 mins
He's checked the thread and theres minimum damage ,in fact theres still plenty of thread left and i've not to worry :D :D :D

After he took my extractor off ,his shop one threaded in no problem at all :shock:
Shows the difference between a keen amateur and a professional who only fixes bikes and has done for 25 year
I really REALLY cant believe it was that easy :shock:


What a guy :D
