I recently purchased a Delta 34-444 table saw, but the seller didn't have the
wrenches to change blades. One is an open end and one is a box end. I've found
very few sources for the box end and they all say the open end is obsolete (?)
Any ideas for a source for these wrenches?
As far as obsolete goes, no they are not obsolete, there may not be
anyone that has them or they may be discontinued but they are not
obsolete. If you going to use two wrenches to tighten and loosen the
arbor nut you have to have an open end for the flange side of the arbor.
Most all of these type wrenches are stamped steel, nothing special other
than the fact that they are narrow.
I would measure the sizes ant buy some cheap Harbor Freight or Northern
Tool wrenches and grind them down in thickness.
As far as all of the Delta parts lists, they consider one of the wrenches
"obsolete" (in their words). Thanks for all of the replies. The arbor nut is
7/8" so a 7/8 box end works great. The person that replied with one of the best
ideas for the arbor shaft is the bicycle wrench, although I found that the thin
wrench I got with my old Craftsman saw is perfect.
Thanks to all.
