I have a face spanner that I really like and use all the time. It is a USAG 281C/160. Does anyone know where I can purchase another and additional replacement pins? Or does anyone know of another company that makes a high quality face spanner with replaceable pins. It is 6.25' long and the small pins measure .07"

Facom makes a high quality face spanner with replaceable pins. The model number is 117B.

Facom also owns USAG but the pins don't look interchangeable.

That thing is huge though. I wish they made a smaller one but they don't.

I think these may be the part numbers for the USAG spanner pins you have. Other than a few wrench sets I've seen it looks like most USAG stuff might need to be ordered from someone in Italy.

Those are them but I can't find anywhere to order them from.

I've never dealt with this store, I have no clue whether they would be willing to ship to the USA, and I have no clue how likely it is that a package from Italy might get lost in transit, but they do have the parts, and they list prices. You may need someone who speaks and/or reads Italian.

I don't think I'll go to the trouble of getting them from overseas :(

AMF German spanners are pretty nice. I've abused a couple larger ones, and they've held up. Samstag carries them and, assuming you're in the USA, they're in Tennessee:

They carry several different size spare pins as well. You might get them to measure the thread size to see if they'd fit your spanner. I've received pretty decent customer service through them.

Granted, all my AMF spanners have fixed pins, but I'd still say it's worth a shot.
