While i have no complaints about my Grizzly 1023 RLWX Table Saw, the arbor wrench that came with it may of well be made out of plastic…After only using it a handful of times, it is bent so badly where the mouth is, that it slips off every time i try and loosen the bolt on the other side of the blade. Does anyone know where or who makes one that is reliable? Regular wrenches are too thick to fit, and i do not want a replacement from Grizzly, as it will end up bent in no time due to the complete lack of quality,

I would go get a correct mm wrench from Home Depot and grind the sides flat till it fits.
I have the 690 and use those wrenches, but I didn’t need to grind them down.

Will do, probably the cheapest and quickest solution. Thanks!

Are you referring to the stamped steel open end wrench to grab the flats on the arbor? I have a drawer full of those things because they are pretty much useless and not worth the time or effort. Any standard wrench will work for the arbor nut – and all you need is that and a scrap piece of wood to remove/install the blade. Simple and easy.

Cheers,

Don’t buy a new arbor wrench. Go to your local pawn shop and go through the bin of open end or combination wrenches until you find the right size. Will probably cost you 50 cents to a buck. Grind it down until it’s thin enough to fit. Use a bench grinder or right angle grinder.

Where is a standard open/box wrench having trouble fitting on? I don’t own this saw. but untouched they (standard wrenches) have worked well on saws of a number of manufacturers as is.

Before I started grinding away on a perfectly good wrench I would try it, lest you make another wrench that simple hand pressure could bend up. Seems you’ve already been down that road.

Owners Manual doesn’t give an actual size for the arbor nut, but it sure looks like what I would expect.
