Default Crank pulley holder - UK supplier?

I have a ring of holes crank pulley on my 93 civic so I'm looking for
a tool similar to the one on the right of the top picture here:
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/crank...ml#ringofholes .

I'm in the UK and wondering where to get one from...

Alternatively I could probably easily get hold of a universal thing
like http://www.lasertools.co.uk/item.aspx?item=1527&cat=304 but it
looks a bit weak and worried it might press against my pulley and
break a lip of something... I could always make my own tool but want
to avoid the hassle...

Cheers!

no reason you can't buy one from a us online seller. exchange rate is
in your favor!

these crank bolts tend to be stupid tight to undo - no way that is going
to be strong enough.

if you have access, air tools will get the bolt out of the pulley no
problem. you'll need a holder to tighten the bolt, but assuming you
have a stick shift, just putting it in gear and having an assistant
apply the brakes should be sufficient.

Thanks for the advice - I tried 5th gear and braking but there was too
much play in it. Have now booked it into a local garage as I've been
spending too much time on my car recently ;-) Then I managed to break
the power steering pump adjusting bolt and a valve cover bolt...not
critical but annoying... At least I know what to do for next time (in
5 years..wooo).

that's for tightening, not loosening.

you need to buy a torque wrench or three - no way should you be breaking
bolts like this. likewise, sounds like having someone else do the work
is the best option for you.
