I need a set for my M12V (21mm and 24 mm I think ), do you have a link to the offset type.

Hi Kenadian
Here's just one of many,you will see it listed at the bottom of the page.

If you buy a set from sommerfeldtools besure to get the FREE video(s) it's free if you buy anything over 20.oo dollars.
You may need to call the 888-228-9268 to get both 21mm and the 24mm the one they list is for the collet nut.
Ask for Marc if he is in ,he will fix you up, I just got a Panel set and the box had a lock pin that was damage, he is shipping a FREE router box at no charge, this guy is something else,,,NICE GUY and he is the BOSS....

I'll have to vouch for sommerfield also. I placed my order for the 21mm offset wrench last Thursday and had it in my mailbox on Saturday. Got the free video as well

Very good folks and a quality product as well.

Thumbs up Wrenches

I ordered a 23 mm wrench Hitachi Part Number 956922 through a local tools dealer. It is the same wrench used on the Hitachi TR12 router which preceded the Hitachi M12V router. Except for the 21 and 23 stamped in the wrench, it looks identical to the 21 mm wrench that ships with the M12V. I used clear plastic tubing on the handle of the 21 mm wrench, and black PVC tubing on the 23 mm wrench (so that the colors match the collett parts). I got the PVC tubing from a scrap piece of 7-wire cable that I used for my trailer hitch wiring. I set the wrench and the PVC out on a black surface in the hot sun to soften it before installing the PVC onto the wrench handle. For reference, the part number for the 21 mm wrench is 956923. It works fine for me, but I read somewhere that you can file off some parts and remove the collett locking plate. This will give you more clearance, but you run the risk of getting filings inside the router.

I emailed sommerfeld, and they no longer stock the 24mm wrench. The did however give me a link to CMT's website, but they don't have any Canadian dealers.........So I'm back to square one.

Paul,

I have several PC routers and therefore have several wrenches. To make everything easy (I made two sets) two wrenches together to get the thick wrenches and it makes everything very easy.

Since my tool mania includes auto tools, I have always had plenty of other wrenchs around. I only use wrenchs that come the router if I am too lazy to dig out better ones. With most, I used better conventional open or flare-nut wrenches. When using bits that are smaller than the collett nut, I sometimes use a 6pt deep socket -- that is the least additional wear & tear on the nut.
