No luck yet in finding the wrench/spanner, but I’ve measured the spacing of the pins. What I get was the pins are 6mm diameter with a spacing of 54mm on centers. A note of caution here. 6mm pins are a bit sloppy in the holes, whereas 1/4” pins are a somewhat better fit. But inch measurements don’t seem right for the spacing, whereas the metric measurement seems more likely as the machine was made in China where metric measurements prevail.

In measuring this, I used two 6mm bits in opposite holes, measured across getting close to 60mm, then subtracted 6mm to get the 54mm spacing on centers.

As for measuring the Fox Supershop, I didn’t bother because there are only six holes, three of which are filled with cap screws in a triangle shape, so I’d have to remove one to make a measurement. I’m reluctant in doing that in light of my past experience with the Smithy.
