No idea why they shipped with a metric wrench, but a 5/16” SAE wrench can be used on 8mm bolt heads. And from what I’ve read, those bolts are only 3/8” in length, so a 1/4”x28tpi-3/4” thin head bolt should work with minimal effort.


PS: I have lots of old Delta tools and have never -not- been able to find parts except for one (but was able to make a better replacement myself), even for machines that are 60+ years old. Not many directly from Delta though, as Pentair and Black and Decker made that almost impossible (read here for a brief description of the problem).
