I've always made do with one wrench. I thought the other was a spare in case
you lost one.
Now I can get rid of that bloodstained dish towel I've been using to grip
the bits to keep them from turning.
LOL... Kinda simple aint it. I guess those people that swear by holding on
to the router some where with one hand and tugging on the 1 wrench with the
other hand may not understand how loosing and tightening with 2 wrenches and
1 hand can be so much easier.
I have a 2 wrench Bosch for about 12 years now.
I set the router on its side, engage the small inner
wrench and rest it against the workbench top, then
engage the outer nut and turn in the direction of
the inner wrench - the bench acts like a stop.
Easier than any other method I could figure. I must
be real smart since it "only" took me a year or so to figure
this out (after a few bruised knuckles).
I found that one fairly quickly with my PC 690. I am usually good at
figuring out things like that fairly quickly. But once in a while I will be
struggling with something and my wife will come walking by. "Why don't you
just do it this way?", she says. "Shit!", I says.
