Default musclechuck nut

Just got a musclechuck, and run into an immediate problem;
I dont have a spanner (wrench) to fit the nut.
I assumed it would be the same size as the router nut, but no.

I am all metric with my tools, dont even have an imperial vernier to measure the nut, so help;
what imperial size do I need? Because I know I'm not going to find a 25.24 mm spanner anywhere.
Pretty usre its not relevant but its a number 9 chuck.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

That nut doesn't require very much torque Bob. I torqued mine too much and caused excess run out doing it. A 26mm would probably work well enough to get it on if an adjustable spanner doesn't work.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Bob
you need to email MuscleChuck Tom, tell which muscleChuck your own because the nuts come in 4 different sizes comes ( depends on which chuck you have )
they are good at getting right back to you
tell us which model chuck you have

Since it only needs to go on once, I would use an "open end adjustable hammer"...and if you need it again, you can just pull it out of the drawer...
