Looking for a wrench

Iíve been trying to complete my tool collection, just got my Park headset press and race installer. Last thing Iím looking for is a 14,15,16 combo crank bolt wrench. I know Iíve seen them but now I canít find an example of one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

BTW, I have one and use it, but especially on the 16mm end the outside diameter is a bit much, makes for a poor fit. Maybe some time spent on the grinder could help it out some.

There's one on ebay right now:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/PARK-CCW-2-....m46890.l49292
There's also the hard to find Park 16mm.

tip -

prior to purchase make sure the 16 has thin enough wall to fit on Zeus

Zeus uses standard removal thread so there is very little room

would be a shame if you pay for a tool with a 16 only to find you still need to grind down a socket, or something, to fit Zeus

If you're intending to use the 16mm socket on a Zeus crank, be aware that the 16mm socket on the 3-way CCW-1 won't fit. You'll need either Zeus' own wrench or the Park CCW-16.

Set up an ebay notification. It looks like about 2 get listed each month. They sell in the $25-40 range.

I did that, the socket cracked at the corners after a bit. Then I got a proper six-point socket and ground that down, no cracks yet.

I ground down a 1/2" drive 16mm socket, years ago. Twelve point and still working like a charm. Never thought to take a picture but it did happen.

What is this ludicrous "complete" your tool collection concept of which you speak?
