Buy the Park 20mm or 19mm and use a file to widen it a bit. I've done this a bunch in the past to get the wrench I need. Most of my personal cone wrenches started out a smaller size. Why throw something away when you can make it work for something else is my motto. enjoy, Brandon"packmonkey"Ives SB, CA
