Pete,
I have my doubts that you have a 31/32 nut.

You sure it's not 15/16 or 1 inch?

only 31/32 I ever saw was used by a plumber. Sort of a stamped type odd ball socket. Dont even remember how many points. Not for mechanical/auto use.

The only 31/32 socket I have seen is Schaul socket for pluming.

schaul socket

you are all right about the 31/32 BUT weldgod said he had a 31/32 schaul socket for plumbing-this is my problem. the set of cowbells or tub wrenches i got had a 31/32 socket to remove a faucet stem in the wall of a shower-it is right handed and the company(kohler) does not know the size wrench to put on it b/c there is no model #. the 31/32 was a tiny bit loose and slipped after a good tug. i shimmed it with a long thin screw driver, and also tapped it on the vise to get it a but snug. it still slipped. the stem is tight but with the right socket it must come out. does the schaul socket have more strenght than the cowbell or tub wrench set ? the plumbing supply store said his too come from taiwan and would be no stronger. i think i tried 15/16 but now i'm not sure. what about that schaul?

A plumbing supply should be able to help out....go to a plumbing supply, not a big box store. They should have the right tool.
