I have the hexagon knock offs on my late production BJ-8 . I bought the metal British Wheel Wrench 40 years ago and love it . I always worried about swinging a 10lb lead hammer so close to the fenders .  Now the only time I use a hammer is to persuade my starter to continue on , when it refuses to work , I’m thinking a new gear reduction starter .

> Second one is OK. You could save yourself about $29:00 and make one yourself. Make a pattern with stiff cardboard. Transfer the pattern to two or three bits of ply, depending on which ply you’ve got to hand. Cut them out, erring slightly on the small side. Glue them together with, say, a decent PVA glue. Clamp it up for a while. Tidy it up with a sander and adjust for fit.
