I don't know about something that little, however, it may be possible to
replace whatever it is with something that can be hand/finger tightened.
For every large power tool I use, I keep one of those magnetic bowls
stuck on it. Stuck in the bowl are dedicated tools for any and every
adjustment that can be made. Allen wrenches, box wrenches, whatever is
needed to make any adjustment is there so i don't have to go looking for
it. I also mark with a sharpie, the size of the nut or set screw for
each adjustment, right next to it on the machine.
It's amazing how much time and frustration that can save.

There a whole catagory of school supplies called "locker organizers". They
are usually made of plastic and designed to hang off of the side of a metal
locker with internal magnets. I got a bunch of them. Some for the shop and
others in my office attached to the file cabinet next to my desk.
Pretty strong considering they were only intended to hold up school
supplies. I am sure that they are are good for a pound or two. Depends on
the manufacturer, of course. Quality varies widely for items like this. I
picked mine up at a big box office supply store.
If you want to test them, just take the item over to a metal file cabinet
and try it out. These aren't going to hold up heavy items. But small tools,
etc., they should do just fine.
I am looking at a pencil/misc. holder right now. It has two big scissors,
about twenty pens and a couple big rulers in it. I still have to tug it a
bit to get it off the file cabinet.
They can... <G>
The magnets often need to glued, as the Chinese factory can be hit and
miss. I had some that fell off the tool, leaving all the magnets still
stuck on the tool.
Larger holes, to allow a screwdriver shaft or wrench handle to hang
through, are easily made with wire cutters.
Exactly! ... Every Allen wrench for the last 30 years has gone into one box,
and, as a result, I know where every Allen wrench for every tool I own, or
have ever owned, is.
It takes some sorting on occasion to grab the right one, but at least I know
it's in that box, and nowhere else.
What I did with the Allen wrench that came with my Knight smoothing plane
was to shape a wood shoe on which to store the plane that had a notch cut
out to keep the blade from contacting the surface and a hole drilled in one
end into which I put the Allen wrench. You could probably do something
similar for the spokeshave
