Rolf Nipple Wrench?(3 posts)

I broke a spoke on a Rolf Vector Pro (new to me but about 5 yrs old), fortunately not far from home. Good news, the spare spoke I had fit; bad news, the LBS does not have a special Rolf socket wrench to tighten the nipple. I presume I'll eventually find a shop with one. However, I'd like to live with these wheels and be prepared for this problem in the future.

Anyone know where to get this special Rolf tool or what generic tool might work (very small, very thin wall, very deep socket)? Thanks.

I actually have a spin-tight with two sides shaved a bit to fit into the holes in the hoop.
Thanks for the info. (nm)KeeponTrekkin
