Chamferless Sockets

Does anyone have any suggestions for somewhere to get a few sockets ground down to remove the chamfer for use on fork top caps?

Almost rounded the top cap last time I used it and can’t stomach paying $50 for a specific socket to Fox.

Hurts. Requires Money. And is nerdy.

Haha I just bought cheapo sockets, cut the top off with a cutoff wheel (to lower the profile), flapdisc, then file. Works just fine.

That said, the fox ones are made from alloy and less likely to damage the alloy topcap, so there is that.

Same, grinder job. I finished mine by holding them against the side of a 16" metal drop saw.
