    I had a seldom more likely never used 1-7/8" 12 point socket that I took a die grinder to 4 of the points about a 1/4" down.

    Hey, what's wrong with the pipe wrench?
    I seem to remember doing that once or twice...
    Hey, it was a long time ago, really!
    (and welding them after install because the thread was almost nonexistent)
    And how many of us are going to do it THAT often?
