After seeing Danthetoolmans’s third photo, I took another look at my Smithy. Mine has 15 holes, not 9 as Dan’s does, so I don’t know if this was a manufacturing change or something the previous owner did. In any event, you can’t get two holes directly opposite one another with 15 holes that are evenly spaced, nor with nine holes. You do get three holes 120 degrees apart with either 15 or 9 holes and that a match for getting the three cap screws evenly spaced for locking down the spring.

Another thing, Dan got 2 1/8” spacing and I got 54mm, the difference is only about .001” so either will work. Were I making a wrench/spanner, I’d try 2 1/8” and 1/4” pins, as the inch sized pins have a tighter fit in the holes.

Aren’t the Supershops interesting?
