Default Pin wrench spacing

Hi

You know the pin wrenches that come with angle grinders to turn the blade clamping nuts?

I've only got a small one (4") and the pins are not far enough apart for something else I'm wanting one for. Does anyone have a big angle grinder and could tell me what the pin centres are on the tool for it?

Cheers

Peter

You might try something adjustable.

Hi

Never heard the term spanner wrench before. Spanner as in spanning, I guess. I've got one of those somewhere amongst my engineering tools, but most of those are still in storeage. Thanks anyway !

Cheers

Hi Peter

I have one of the tank size grinder (about 25 lbs) and the one I have uses the hex nut type..the one I have has a push in lock pin as well..if I recall it's a 7/8" or 1" hex nut size..

Thanks Bob but my application needs a pin wrench. I can make one up, but if a bigger one than the one I've got is available, I'll go into town and grab one. I thought I'd just check first.

Cheers

Peter the larger angle grinders use hex nuts to hold the wheel on. Your best bet would be what Rusty shows.

A person can never have too many tools!

Hi Bob

I reckon the only Snap-On tools around here are in my toolbox. I've an Armstrong adjustable somewhere. (Two arms pivoted at one end with pins on the extremities) I think it is probably in store with all my engineering stuff, though. I've knocked up one out of a strip of oak and two M5 bolts that will do pro temp.

Cheers

Sounds good Peter


If you use a old Crescent Wrench ( adjustable wrench) and drill two holes for some 1/8" steel dowel pins , you have one that will fit many tools
