Introduction: Arbor Wrench

Make an arbor wrench, for a table saw or other tool, using a carpenter square.

Step 1: Carpenters Square

Grab a cheap, but strong carpenter square that is wide enough to accommodate the arbor nut on your tool. Choose steel over aluminum.

Step 2: Mouth

Cut away material at one end of the square the width of the arbor nut.

Step 3: Torque

Ready for use.

    A steel square would be best for this hack, take a magnet with you when checking it, if it sticks you're good. ☺

    Great point. I used steel, but forgot to add that to the description. Just updated the instructable. Thanks.
