I am considering doing that.  All the local places didn't have the tool.  I 
checked my Zelenda catalog, and they listed something for around $35.  The tool 
might be different than what I need though.  The picture in the tool catalog I 
looked at in a tool store that didn't have it matched perfectly, however.
