I had this same problem! Problem solved quick and easy! I ran a 20mm Park wrench right up a 20mm grinding wheel! The 20 mm grinding wheel was a little bit bigger than 20mm, zapped it real fast and I had my 21mm wrench! Nice even cut, cleaned it up a little and it fitted just fine. I know the wheels in the States are probable sized different! Do note! Wear gloves eye protection and be careful!

This only happened by chance.
