Porter Cable Question - Missing wrench

I just received my PC, and I rip everything open, and I'm missing two things... my instruction manual (which I hear is useless), and my wrench tool.

Would someone mind posting a pic of this tool, or let me know if I can use a different tool to substitute for this?

Think I should complain to Amazon that I didn't get a complete box?

Thanks!

Complain to Amazon immediately!!! You paid for the whole machine, not part of it. The wrench they give you is very thin and it was made to fit between the backing pad and machine itself. Get the wrench you paid for.

I agree with DaividN, get the wrench you paid for from Amazon. Anyway, this is what it looks like: http://www.properautocare.com/repocaflwr.html

Thanks guys, I contacted Amazon and PC to see what they can do for me. I see I can purchase this online, but it would seem silly to purchase a $4 tool and then pay $6 shipping. The other silly option would be to return the PC to Amazon and get a new box, but I would pay $10 to ship it back.

Hopefully one of them will step up and mail me my wrench.

Just an update on my wrench situation. So, I was able to get porter cable to send me a wrench, free of charge. Right before I get my wrench in the mail, someone breaks into my storage shed and steals my porter cable that I had just got (never been used). They take nothing else, just the polisher. Now... I have a wrench, and not the polisher. Oh man... I can't believe the irony.

At least the guy that stole it doesn't have the wrench. Seriously, sorry about your PC.
