Porter Cable 310 trimmer help4/23
I am looking for a bit of help. I am searching for a particular tool, the spanner wrench used to tighten the retainer nut on the shaft of a PC 310 series trim router. the nut itself is PC part# 844643. I have had no luck searching for a specific tool, or in finding a spanner wrench with the proper size pins/spacing.
Any help/advice would be appreciated. TYIA
Go to the link and look at fig 224. It says open end wrench.
If that;s no help you might try emailing "'Pat Warner - The Router Man " and ask him where you might find one.
Thanks for the speedy reply. The wrench you indicate is one of the pair that comes with the unit for changing bits, but I will be emailing Pat per your suggestion.
I had the same problem as you-
OK, I realized after the replies I got so far that my initial description was not clear enough.
I didn't read your question thoroughly, either.
You could make a wrench pretty quick to get it apart. I'd suggest a couple of spring pins from the hardware store and a piece of hardwood or possibly phenolic, acrylic, or even some solid surface material like Corian for the wrench. Unless you're replacing bearings in a bunch o routers, might be the most cost effective route.
Northern Tool sells an adjustable spanner wrench. I have one it works well. As long as you get the thumb screw tight after adjusting.
