Topic tags/keywords: r4511 ridgid table saw arbor wrench tablesaw

Hi, the open ended arbor wrench has gone missing from my R4511 table saw. This wrench is showing to be discontinued everywhere I’ve been able to find mention of it online. Can someone with an R4511 measure theirs and let me know what size it is? Or do you know if the wrench for the R4512 will work?

Thanks so much,
Dow

Hey Brad,

No, I need the open end one that goes on the arbor itself. I’ve got a 7/8 wrench that works fine on the nut. The lands for the back up wrench on the arbor are too narrow for a regular open end wrench to fit, and I didn’t think about getting the size with my calipers when I had the insert off last night. As I recall, it looked sort of like the current one that they make for the 4512, but I can’t remember. I had the saw in storage for over a year while I got a shop built, had back surgery, took care of family stuff, etc., etc., and last night was the first time since the move that I need to pull the blade off. Here’s a link to amazon’s listing (Currently (and possibly) unavailable):

Brad, I just heard form a guy on ridgidforums that the wrench measures 23mm.

I imagine quite a few different saws use that size… Grizzly sells one for their saws (16mm X 23mm open end) that might work. I find it easier to just use a scrap piece of 2×4 though :)

Thanks Brad! That’s great! I figured that some other saws would have the same size, but without knowing what it was, I couldn’t check. For the price of the wrench and shipping from grizzly, I can probably buy an open end wrench and grind it down to work.

Or just hold the blade with a gloved hand. The nut should need to be tightened that tight as its rotation further tightens the arbor nut.

Thanks Toolie. That’s what I did last night.

Might be cheaper to buy an inexpensive 23mm and grind it thinner.

Maybe I should check a few of my old router wrenches…...to see what size they are….

Yep. The wrench from grizzly with shipping is $12.00. For about that, I can get one at the local big box and grind it down.

Open box Delta wrench, $8.30. Doesn’t list the size though.

The R4511 was made by Steel City/Orion, so I’d think the wrenches from their hybrid models or the Craftsman 22104, 22114, or 22124 would also work.

Get a wrench from a thrift store or pawn shop for a buck or so.

Thanks. Looks like Sears is still selling a granite top saw. Same specs as the r4511, except for the cabinet and the fence. Insert and the blade guard look exactly the same. I wish mine had that outfeed extension on it, though. They’ve got it as the Craftsman Professional 1-3/4 HP Premium Hybrid 10 Table Saw.
