    Received my L-0 wrench (only five business days after placing the order, which includes USPS shipping time), and tried it out today. Nicely made, and works great! Thanks, Walter!

    I had seen Walter's posts in the past for the "L" style spanners, but didn't have a need at the time for one. When I bought my recent Lodge and Shipley with an L1 spindle, it was John Oder who recommended I get an L1 spanner wrench from Walter.

    I believe, that I am the first Canadian customer for Walter, although, I had Walter ship the wrench to my Calaise Maine mailing address. I finally had some time, last month, to make the trip.

    I am Very impressed with the fit and finish....

    Thanks Brian and thanks to John Oder for the recommendation. I believe you indeed might be our first Canadian customer but I did ship a couple to Alaska in the past.
    Making these spanners has not been something we are getting rich from but it's nice to know our quality is appreciated. We cut many parts daily on our CNC Table but I really like to see these special shapes.

    The most unusual was a box wrench we made for an industrial electrical contractor. He had a crew working in a very tight underground electrical vault and needed a large but stubby wrench to use with a porta-power unit. He told me how much swing he had so I worked out an offset in the hex so it could be flipped after reaching the stops.

    I needed to add the chart originally given to me by John Oder. I always recommend that those wanting to buy a spanner look at this chart to double check their size.

    Any requests so far for L3 Walter? I visualize one of those being about five feet of 1" plate

    None so far and we really do not stock any AR or T1 plate other than in 3/8" and 5/8" with a little 1/2" AR500 for shooter targets. The largest we have made was the L2. I sure would like to see the spindle for a L3!

    Not in stock but can cut, clean and ship out early next week. Click my Avatar and you should have the option to send me an email. I need your shipping address so I can estimate shipping cost.

    Me thinks the L3 should probably be cut out without the handle, the purchaser
    can source any manner of steel locally and weld it on.

    I 100% agree that if and when I ever get a request for one this should be an option. It goes without saying that I would need to cut this one from T1 rather than AR400 due to the obvious welding problems with AR400. Or, maybe I could size the stub end to allow for fit inside a piece of pipe?

    I had considered this but knowing how many lathe owners use my spanners along with a soft face or otherwise maul I'm not too sure a breaker bar or ratchet would hold up.

    Apparently the current design of mine holds up to abuse plus I do offer a lifetime replacement for broken spanners.

    Just ordered an L00 wrench from Walter for my Sheldon MW-56-P. I finally got tired of busting my knuckles using the old and badly worn wrench that came with it. Hopefully I won't run out of band aids before it gets here. It seems I'm changing out chucks considerably more often in the last few weeks than I have in the last several months.

    Thank you for the wrench Walter. received it yesterday and was surprised at the size in comparison to my old wrench. Needless to say I won't be skinning my knuckles using this one. Not only do I need to eat my Wheaties before lifting it, I don't even need to be in the same room as the lathe when I loosen the nut. Here is picture comparing the new wrench to the one I had been using. In all fairness the old wrench was from a South Bend lathe.

    Thanks Walter, I received the L0 spanner wrench for my 1977 Leblond today and it works great!
    Now I can try out my new Bison 12" 4-jaw chuck.

    Thanks again for getting it out so quickly.

    Received my L0 spanner today and love it!
    I could've gone the rest of my life with the old one but you guys spoke so highly of them, I had to have one.
