    hello
    i have a 60's crane bath tub faucette on my tub. it has started leaking a little and i want to replace the washers. the problem is i can't find a stem wrench that will fit this crane faucette. it seems to be a 15/16 size. the stem wrench kit at lowes comes with a 29/32 and 31/32. any suggestions other than taking one of these wrenches and trying to modify it someway? thanks greg

    Usually one of those two sizes will be a close enough fit to work, but if not get a standard 1/2" drive deep socket and use a pair of pliers to turn it.
