I've heard people people removing these without the special tool. Maybe if you do some digging you'll find an answer.

You mean you've heard of people doing a piss poor job.....

Some people have taken a cheap impact socket from Harbor Freight and a dremmel and cut their own. You're better off just buying the right tool.

Depends how good you are with a dremmel ;D.

Maybe if you have a bike shop close to you you could ask to borrow a tool or to crack the nut for ya.

Otherwise yeh, just buy one

I bought a Craftsman socket and cut/sanded it. Works perfectly.

I do that kinda stuff for a living though. It isn't for everyone, that is for sure.

Made mine with an .045 wafer wheel on a 4.5" angle grinder. Like a hot knife through butter ;)

Depends on how wrench-friendly you are.

If I had a mill, I'd make my own. But for my bike (05 600), I could buy both motion pro tools for under $100. My time and sanity is worth that.
