If it's not too tight you could use a pair of 90 degree bend circlip pliers maybe.

It's called a Variable Pin Spanner Wrench.

I make my own when needed at work by drilling a piece of flat bar at the required distance and use a couple of screws locked on with nuts.

Yeah !.... like wot Ed said Roy. ... I have on occasion used the gizmo below to shift those rascals, I have another with thinner pins ... as you can see it's adjustable, but it's really meant for removing the screwbacks of watches. ... Jack.

i knew you would too, jack
i think between the 3 of us we've got hardware nailed down.. i've been using my lens spanner but i snapped off the pointed end on one of them.. guess it's grinding time..

Roy I just checked this one pins are 1.4mm. I can't find my other one at the moment, but I'd guess they're about 0.6 mm. It does the job. ... Jack

the holes on mine seem to be around 2mm or .1'' diameter. it's just a close informed guess tho as it's tough to measure something that small.

Probably 1/8". Most for the grinders are 1/8" or 3/16".
