...use Park's FR-1 removal tool. I'm talking about the multi-speed freewheel. If you can't loosen it with the tool and an adjustable wrench, place the FR-1 in a vise and set the wheel/freewheel onto it and unscrew it like you are turning a truck steering wheel.

If you're trying to remove a BMX type freewheel, use the Park FR-6 tool the same way.
