    Thanks for that. I should of mentioned, could do with it being 8" plus long. The longest i've found so far is 5"....maybe it doesn't even exist!

    Just make one if you cannot buy one

    Get a normal ball end Allen key and grind the end off so its straight then just use a normal socket and extension bar.

    Easy peasy and will hardly cost anything you just need an angle grinder or take it to a garage, they will chop it in half for you.
