I knew I had seen that key before. I am in the process of looking at that star nut and figuring out what will work the best. I even bought an extra bar so I could have two extra star nuts. I may try embedding them in into larger wood wheels to give it more of a home made look. I also could make a handle similar to how I did the rear jaw. I marked the star nut and drilled each point with a 1/2” forstner bit and then the center out to the inside of the dips on the drill press. The remaining I used a chisel to remove. My fear is that it will be a two handed operation if not deep enough.
