    Savoy tub socket, valve stem nut is not hexagon

    I am helping a neighbor with a leaky hot water shower faucet in a house that dates from the late-50s early 60s. The stem has a 15-point broach. But the main nut (not the packing nut) is round with two opposing flat areas, instead of hexagon, so a cowbell would not fit. Can't quite get pliers...
