Dunno about Tom Turner's, but I made a handy
one out of a $5 plastic washtub from the Deals
discount store. I cut it down to height, cut it
in half, then cut out a hole to fit the raised bump
on the platform of my Pacifica. I duct-taped the
halves together, and it served well until I could
get a replacement splash pan. (Thanks, Pat C!)
Not sturdy enough to lean on, so using my wheel
to teach with is what precipitated the search for
the genuine article, but the same method served
well for a slip-on trimmings catcher to fit within
the perimeter of the actual splash pan.
And no wheel-head removal.

Hello Clayarters, I'm trying to make a new splash pan/trimmings catcher
like Tom Turner's. I'm at the point of taking off the wheel head from my
Brent B. It looks like a hex wrench should fit a pin that is holding the
head to the shaft but none of my hex wrenches will fit. Is there a special
tool I need or an odd sized hex wrench? Any help would be appreciated.
