Default OT: Finding a Torx socket in vancouver

Besides the subaru's at home I also have a Volvo which needs it's thermostat changed. Unfortnally to get the housing open I need a T-40, 6" long torx socket bit (and no, an extension would not work because of clearance issues).

Does anybody know where I can this locally??? I've tried all the shops I could think off (Kms, canadiantire, ackland, etc)


Thanks.

doh.. tried that too... sears (at least the local one) only stocks the torx in the usual 1" long versions....... I need min 6".


Looks like I don't have much choice but to buy snap-on.... *sigh*.. gonna be $$$ (not to mention the fact they don't even have a store)
