I ended up moving to the hexagon nuts and the big socket to put them on and take them off.
On the spinners - I had two sets of spinners, a 1970s set was clearly OEM and a newer set.
The ears on the new set had far better clearance on the minilites, the OEM one had clearly been worked hard and interfered with both the RD wrench and the wheels.
As a result, I decided that this wasnt a fight in which I wanted to engage - so for the Minilites I use the hexagon nuts and for the steel wheels, I use the eared ones.

I have no idea! At the time I just went around the shops and bought some very easily. Where they were made and by whom I have no idea. They are heavier though..................
