Seeking Lockring/Cog Removal Tool

Anyone have suggestions on a single tool that has a spanner wrench to remove lockrings and a 1/8" chain whip on the other side to remove the track cogs?

I have an anti-suggestion - don't get the one I have... the curve of the lock ring part is just wrong and it won't grab the slot and pivot on the edge like it's supposed to. Shown with my Hozan lock ring tool which IS curved correctly.
Now I use the Hozan for the lock ring and the Sunlite for the chain whip.

Not an answer to the OP's questoin but sorta related. I wanted a cog wrench I could strap to the top tube for on the road cog changes (so I could ride the week long Cycle Oregon fixed and have 3 different cogs for the mountain days). I bought some plate 1/4" 6061 aluminum, cut out a 22" lever, mounted some chain and wrapped the other end in inner tube as a handle and to stop rattle on the bike. I ran a light shock cord from close to the handle to the end of the whip to keep it behaved on the bike. Made a "chock" at the working end that fits against the seatstay just below the toptube. Use and extra -long toestrap there and a shortened one mid toptube to hold it.18 oz total weight.

This turned out to be the best (and easiest to use) cog wrench I have ever used. If it is not on my bike, it gets used over my "real" one. I already carry a Pedros Trixie hub wrench and spanner so combining the two functions wouldn't gain me anything. (Plus those Trixie spanners are really good, Much better and far easier to use than the plate Park spanners for the bell shaped 12 tooth lockrings.)

DiabloScott, the Trixie works well on standard lockrings, the slightly larger Miche lockrings and two different 12 tooth lockrings, one SunTour. They got the curve right. Better than Park which is not right for the 12s (as well as being narrow and hard to keep from slipping off since you cannot use the cog as a "shoulder").

Yeah I bought the SunLite because I needed the 1/8" whip and I just thought the lock ring feature would be handy; the Hozan works fine I don't need anything else but I'm still kind of mad about it. I had a Trixie attached to my Masi that was stolen a few years ago - it was a nice tool.
