PM3520a wrench replacement needed

Bob Persing (Skillman NJ)
>Hi folks,
I have a PM3520a and, although being quite pleased with the lathe, I absolutely do not like the wrenches supplied with the lathe. They are quite narrow and will dig into the shaft or faceplate kinda messing them up. I would like to know if anyone has a creative source for replacement wrenches that will not cost me a fortune. Sizes needed for chucks (Nova) spindle and faceplates are about 1.5" and 2". Open-end wrenches at Sears are about $30 to $40 each (too much $$ for me). I have not found anything used (so far).

Suggestions welcome!

Thanks for your help.
