    The HCW3 is a 36mm spanner. Cyclo/Weldtite do one in their range of tools part no 06360.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
  • I GOT THE 36MM ON HCW4 ITS THE 25MM END ON THE HCW3 THAT I NEED

    Or just buy a 25mm spanner, it's not like they don't exist. Google search would of helped you.
