It's that place I can't spell again - Sykes Pickavant or whatever it is.
In the UK and Ireland, Halfords stores are everywhere - kind of like
your Autozone but they sell bicycles and camping gear. Their tools have
been getting better and better for years and they carry a lot of Sykes
Pickavant stuff now - the ball joint splitter is another example. It's a
tight fit, but just right for getting the track rod ends off. It's no
good on the left hand side ball joints because of the angle drive nut
getting in the way, but it gets the other side off fine
