4/ screw, fold washer.

No need for holding the brake; wheel inertia is enough.

lol,
(just that? normally we say 800lbs... but they are small asian variety I guess...)

At over 300 Nm in a fraction of second pulses, it did hammer longer than usual the first time I changes the front sprocket, but that's more controlled and that beats using the breaker bar no questions there, and it avoids circus accidents.

Electric corded impact wrenches are the cheapest and likely heaviest, but who cares when you use it that rarely.

Dear Onewizzard, thanks for the alternative opinion. I am not worried about the chain and I have not seen any data about considerable chain wear related to 14T sprocket. Once I replace the chain I will give feedback. But it will take a while.
