    I made one myself for my first 9061D but I'd like an original if I could find one. Anyone know of a source?

    Hello Colin
    @Colin Geer

    Originals are not easy to find.
    DocMark had a batch of these spanner made some years ago. And I suppose they are long gone.
    But I have seen copies made in Taiwan/Koreea for sale on Ebay

    I put a bicycle PRESTA valve cap as a 9061D spanner.

    Big picture belongs to Kiyokiyo blog.

    I'll post some pictures when I get home. It isn't a copy, I have no real way of succeessfully making the enclosed hex openings and I don't know what size they are so I created a flat steel double ended spanner with 14mm and 24mm ends. All it took was some careful scribing, even more careful filing and lots of patience.

    Ahhhh, that's not what I meant by spanner. Maybe the term wrench is better understood.

    Here's my replacement spanner. It's made from mild steel, roughly 3mm thick and it's pretty simple - no bells and whistles, but it works OK. It loosens the filler cap, both the fuel shut off valve and flow control valve nuts and the large pump assembly nut.

    Actually now I have your precise plans I might try making a close copy of the Enders original.
