Who makes a wrench for the BB lockring, has six "slots" around edge, about 38mm apart?
Pin spanner was easy, the wrench is harder to find.

What's wrong with the Park HCW5 lockring tool with one tooth on one end and 3 on the other?It's worked for every notched BB lockring I have encountered,including sugino.

I have checked every LBS in my area, they don't stock them.
Since I have to order it sight unseen, I wanted to make sure I got the right one.

The Park c-spanner does work fine indeed, but it's so thin that it just doesn't feel solid in the hand. That won't keep anyone from doing fine on occasional use, but the forged tools with a little heft in the handle feel so much better. To me, that's worth checking out before buying -- if there's time (seems like these things always come uo when you're ready to get a project done and on the road). Hozan makes one, though I don't know where to get it. Sometimes shops have multiples and will sell one out of empathy.

I would guess that I might use it once or twice a year.
I may just have the LBS do it, they want $16 to rebuild it, including new bearings.
