Need die wrench

Where can one buy an 1 1/8" open ended narrow tine wrench which will fit reloading dies? Dillon sent me a 1" which is not large enough to work. Need open ended and narrow to fit in-between the adjacent dies.

Sear's craftsman, Harbor freight cheap stuff, or how about just an adjustable wrench??
Snap On, and Mac tools if you want to spend a LOT of money LOL
lots of places to get one
even Lowe's/Home Depot might have them!

For What !! Been reloading for 50 years and never needed or used a wrench for anything , finger tight is all you ever need...use a set of channel locks if it get tight to get it off..

OK well again you can get a standard wrench and grind it down to make it work
OR why not just have Dillion get you a correct one??

Dillon sent me a wrench 1" $9 and told me that all they have. Need open end to squeeze in the tight space between the dies on a Dillon whereas some of my dies have 1 1/8" nuts. Thanks for the helpful input will go to shopping this week.
