Hello, anyone know where I can get a no 6 bristo wrench that the art 13 manual calls for? My art 13 sadly needed the number 1 mechanism removed and cleaned as the preset plates were stuck. The entire mechanism needs to be aligned minus the a and b but to do that I need the plus sign looking allen key, sorta looks like a Philips head but it's not. Any idea where I can get one?

Ahh, so that's why I couldn't find any. The manual must have a typo because it said bristo wrench not Bristol wrench.
I managed to find some on McMaster,  there just 4 spline- spline wrenches.

I've seen them referred to as Bristo wrenches before as well.

I never tracked down if that was an often repeated typo or possibly there was another company trying to rude the bandwagon....

Anyway, glad you found them. They can be elusive!

The wrench was originally made by the Bristol Tool Company, which referred to it in the 1940's in their ads as "The Bristo Wrench."   Thus either is correct.
