Default Help with Delta arbor wrench

I picked up a Delta contractor saw at an auction a few weeks ago. Its a 34-444, about 19 years old. I had to go back today and locate the miter guide, blade guard assembly, and what I think was the original 7/8" open end arbor wrench. So far so good, but....the wrench won't reach the flats because the gap between the blade washer and arbor mount (is that the right term?) is so narrow. I measured the wrench and it is 1/8" thick. Does this sound right or perhaps did the previous owner change the blade washer? If someone could measure their arbor wrench I sure would appreciate it.

The wrench that comes with the saws are narrower than a standard mechanics wrench. The 1/8" is about right.

I e-mailed Delta technical service, and they said the thickness of their arbor wrench is .160", slightly thicker than 1/8". So, I guess I'll have to get some type of after market blade lock (a scrap of lumber didn't work so well) and use a one wrench system.

Joe, you could always purchase a cheap wrench and "customize" with a grinder to get it thin enough to fit.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

That is right up my alley, "cheap", since I already have the old wrench that I can't use. If I grind away there's nothing to lose
