Cardiff market tool stand if it is still there or ebay, cheap set for 5er... 5 in 1 sort of thing
might need to file the tabs a bit to get them small enough.

Mine are a cheap version, like I say I filed the nose bits down to make them fit the Rockshox circlips holes.

they are a bit like these but I got mine of my local market.
