my google fu sucks, I need one this week and cannot find one. I checked MSC, ENCO, sears, snap on, amazon...

From the end of the driver to the base of the handle needs to be 12"

I might make one, It wont see a lot of torque. Thinking about some stainless hex stock and an aluminum handle.

They do make 1/4" ball hex sockets with 1/4" drive. If that won't fit, then hex stock might be the way to go.

ETA: Too slow........

Buy some hex rod and make one.

I've never seen any that long. Shape some hex stock or cut/weld.

The blade is close but by the time I put a handle on it I will be short...

normally I would use a hex bit on an extension but it would take me 2 weeks to recover from losing anything in the system... its going to be worth buying/making a tool specific for this job.

Well use a hex bit on an extension and tack it together. Boom.

Bingo.

Hardened Hex rod in the proper size, a socket that fits it, a tack weld or two... It works real well.

Mac used to make one really close to that in 3/8 drive. We used cap screws on the headers on the modified, made tightening header bolts a breeze.

Loctite red. Also, I think I have 12" bit holder with a set screw. I'll look tomorrow when I get to my shop.

Cut it off and shaped a handle out of aluminum. Its not perfect but should do the job.

Don't know why you need such an unusual tool...

Cut the ball allen driver at the hook, weld some 1/4" drill stock to it , and twist it into any handle you want!

Basically did the same thing, the hex end is 1/4" 10$ and 20 minutes got me a useable tool.
