Default 5-point socket or wrench

Anyone know where I can purchase a 5-point socket or wrench for opening transformers? I've looked all over town. An online seller maybe?

McMaster-Carr I can't copy and paste from their site, just search 5 point sockets.

I purchased one from snap-on a couple of years ago , he had to order it. Don't remember what it cost but I remember it was reasonable.

Are you sure it was Snap-on? I have never thought of them as reasonable. Ie: their $150 9" linemans.

Pentahead socket - common with utility companies.

There are several different sizes.

Try JL Matthews online.
