A lister recently asked for assistance in sourcing a spanner/socket for the rear axle wheel lock nut (I think most just use a cold chisel and hammer!). The above pictured was made specially for me by a friend -- an individualised solution, much like the bespoke master brake cylinder nut was presumably conceptualised/made by Phil Marino. I thought that if the picture was posted on the site, listers would have an idea about fabricating/turning/milling one for their own requirements. The dimensions are o/d = 54mm, i/d 48mm, height to shoulder 44mm, height to end of the four "teeth" 51.5mm (i.e. each tooth is 7.5mm high). As the lock nuts were not perfect in measurement, the teeth were spaced and cut to size using the actual nuts as templates.
