a better way
Just figured out a better way to get the bike gears apart - drilling out the rivets helps keep the gears in better shape than grinding them down. And for the ones with no rivets, use a smaller cutoff blade on the grinder to take off the top gear. The rest will follow, beautifully whole. And I only need to make one cut to pry it off - saving time, rather than making the 3 cuts I originally thought I had to make. Ooooh, I love that die grinder!
