Whitworth spanners

Post by stationary stu on Tue Sep 15 2009, 12:31

Hi don't know if anyone is short of a couple of ww spanners but mine were getting a little old so I opened my wallet and purchased these from ebay. They only took a couple of days to arrive and I'm happy with them, not the best of quality but for the price who can complain. Whitworth spanners ain't easy to find and the prices are going up all the time so dig deep guys

Laser tools make whitworth spaners and most motor factors deal with Laser. Not bad quality tools for the price, they also do whitworth sockets as well.
Mind you don't go buying loades of tools thuogh as they are quite cheep, you may walk away with an emty wallet :violin:
