They're everywhere.

Harbor Freight has one: Oxygen Sensor Socket - 7/8''

Northern Tool has one: Performance Tool Oxygen Sensor Socket — 3/8in. Drive, Model# W1267 | Specialty Tools | Northern Tool + Equipment

Sears sells some. I got mine (brand: OEM) from my local Auto Zone, so I bet you could probably find one at your local auto parts store.

Unless you need it immediately, try a quick Google search.

^I want to know of some that won't give/strip
I've tried the Nortern one and it stripped my o2 last time.... I haven't tried the westward one yet.... almost like mazda is wanting you to buy one of their o2 sensors.... not going to happen.

Thanks guys for the responses

I bought the one that I use at Autozone but it looks pretty much just like the one that I posted. There is no way it will give at all. I have used it on multiple people's cars and have not stripped a sensor yet.

A 22mm open end, bent about 25 degrees does the trick too. Sometimes you have to modify the tool Are you replacing the A/F ?

No, 2 o2's in my Speed. I don't trust myself with an open ended wrench. Besides, the upstream o2 on this car is recessed quite a bit... Kinda interesting.
