Yes, grouch - they are available. Consider buying two. Of course you already know that two wrenches are often required.

Grouch (what a name!)

Also remember that the 1-1/2" nut has reversed threads. Clockwise to loosen!

Welcome to the forum.

One thing to watch out for and that is the locking screw that holds the arbour to the shaft. That can get munted if it is backed off too far. The reverse threaded nut can catch on this and cause problems. Guess how I know...

You may want to contact Bill Mayo ("billmayo" on this forum) to see if he can help you with getting a pair of wrenches.

I may be missing something here but I don't believe it is hard to get a wrench. They are available from Shopsmith:

However, I used a Crescent.
