Rectangular tuning wrench

Do you have information regarding zither supplies, such as rings, strings, tables and sheet music? Are you looking for a reliable zither, or have one to sell?

If this question has already been solved, please forgive an "olde timer".

Has anyone found a reliable source for rectangular tuning wrenches. Which size?

Rudy, I don't believe so. It continues to be a persistent issue. For those who have purchased an early zither missing a tuning key, which may require new strings anyway, perhaps it would be more practical to replace the early rectangular-headed pins with modern square-headed ones instead? It solves the immediate problem and a future one, if the rectangular tuning wrench should go missing.

The Meinel & Herold Klingenthal I received for Father's Day 2018 came with three tuning wrenches, one square, two rectangular.

Rudi.
I have a spare rectangular key if you would like it.
It is well made with what looks like a rosewood handle.

Thank you...but I forgot to mention the third key, which was square and fit.
