Where the hell can I buy one? :confused:

I'd rather buy the actual tool than make one with a piece of 7/8 hex stock....

have no clue whats so special about a 7/8" allen for king pins but if your asking about the socket you can get them at near any tool store like sears, hd or lowes.

BillaVista built his from a piece of hex stock that he had bent at 90*. I wouldn't be posting here asking if it was as simple as going to Lowes and buying it.... :flipoff2:

Yer right. Not as simple as going to Lowes. Go to OSH instead! They have them.

I bought the insert for a 7/8" Snap-On allen socket and use it with a 7/8" 3/4" drive socket. It wasn't much even though it was Snap-On. But then again that was probably 20 some odd years ago.

I thought about that...I could buy a 12" piece of 4140 7/8" hex stock from McMaster Carr for $15. Might still do that...

I made one for about $10. I got a $5 7/8 hardened chisel from the local hardware store and cut the end off with my chop saw. I got a $3 7/8 impact socket from the same store and welded it to $2 worth of flat stock. It fits into just about any of the scrap I have laying around for a cheater, and twisted the pins out like nothing. The chisel was also long enough to make 4 or 5 studs incase I break one. If you have a really good flex bar or rachet you could just snap it onto that, but I broke both of mine trying it. The welded version is not as pretty, but works great.
