    I have one, but i've never used it, so I don't know if it fits? lol A forum member made one up as a tester, and I got the prototype.

    Well,
    The jobs been done .
    When i called to GSF to pick up my filter i noticed that they sell the tool for £18 so it may proove easier and cheaper than buying a socket and chopping it up to make my own
