Hello jocks, My buddy cut me out some custom arbor wrenches for my Unisaw. I was tired of tightening the blade with one wrench and a piece of wood. These are also longer than a standard arbor wrench to keep my carney hands from getting nicked. They are mild steel .180 thick and 13 ” total length . Let me know your thoughts. If there is a demand for these i can go ahead with a final design and production.

I know the right arbor wrenches make a big difference. The Sawstop wrenches are what I consider near perfect design. They are long and sturdy, and slightly bent to keep fingers and steel clear of the blades.

The only thing that could be improved…
Rubber coating on the handles.

Check them out if you’re looking for design ideas for your own use.

I’ve never used a piece of wood when tightening the nut… but it works great when loosening it :)
(and any standard 7/16” wrench works well for the task)
