These are all great ideas! Thanks a bunch guys.
Before posting this thread, I had actually already been through a couple "tools". Both were pretty much made with stuff in arm's reach of me at the time, and were thus, pretty awful.
This was pretty awkward and slipped off easily.
#2 I dremeled out of a PVC end cap because is was really quick and easy to work with. I also thought the square end cap would work nicely in a crescent wrench. Naturally something so quick and easy didn't work at all! Didn't even bother with a pic of #2.
On the next "tool" I was gonna get serious and find some thick walled round tubing the right size and cut the teeth into the end of it. Was gonna weld any random old socket up on the other end and go after it again.
In the morning I'm headed to El Autozone to see if they may have a hub socket that will fit. Assuming that doesn't pan out, I'm going to look for a big effin socket to notch out
Fun fact: The threads on this piece are LEFT HANDED. This is important! lol
I'll let you know how it goes!
