Default can't find a 50mm socket

Anybody know where to get a 50mm socket locally? I think. It has to be a socket. A 2" 6-point would be a little loose but would probably work.

So, either a 50mm socket or 2" 6-point is what I'm looking for. I suck at the internet.

What I need to do is torque the nut down to 195 ft.lbs. It's the 5th gear lock nut. I'll check with napa.

And, thanks Chad. I never would have found that. And it's cheap.

NAPA should have something, We needed a 2" 6 point for the wheel nuts on the Indy car and they had one 1/2" drive at the Butler store.

Sears (online) has a 20 piece 3/4" drive socket set that includes a 50mm socket. It's only $279.

They also had a 2" socket, but only in 12 pt.
