Seeking a TA Crank Removal Tool

Hi All,
I'm looking for a crank removal tool for my 1980s TA Cyclotourist crank.
If you happen to have one, no longer need it and would be willing to sell it I'd be interested.
Alan

I've got one I'd be willing to loan you if you don't mind paying for shipping. Let me know and I'll send you a message with my contact information.

Park tool CCP-1 (the old dual sided ones) have the TA size on one end, if you can find one of those.

Thank-you everyone.
Marley, I didn't know about Bike Tools etc! Wow! Excellent.
CMC, thanks for the offer. If I can't find one in a reasonable amount of time I may take you up but it looks like there are good options. I worked at Chula Vista Schwinn back in the 70s. Haven't had the chance to ride in San Diego in a long time. Great riding there.
Alan

It looks to me that Mel Pinto Imports is a wholesaler. I would like to purchase a VAR tool and his website is not oriented to selling. It looks like one has to go to LBS and see if they will order from Mel Pinto. Please confirm or advise...

"MPI is a wholesale operation supporting independent dealers and frame builders." Maybe you can find a local framebuilder to order for you? Looks like he has some real interesting stuff (not sure what the pricing looks like).

I have had success picking up the older dual sided Park crank tools, even the older CCP-2s had them (newer CCP-2s don't). The trick is to find someone selling a dual sided CCP-2 on ebay by studying the pictures (not mentioned in the ad or title). Picked up a couple that way. The CCP-1s sell for a premium.
