Any decent tool supply should be able to sell you a 5/16" 8-point socket.

I got mine at Sears, but you could mail-order from McMaster-Carr if you
wanted to.  
P/N 5543A63 

I also find it helps to use a T-bar with both hands to turn the socket, so
there is little or no side force applied to the set screw.  The original TR3
ones weren't so fragile, but the later ones with the nylon insert snap
really easy.
