    I have heaps of spanners , not sure what to do with them.

    1. I retired 6 yrs ago....

    2. I sold my Land Rover 5 yrs ago...

    No mechanical work being done by Dennis , no need for hundreds of spanners I own.

    The local heritage society may get a good donation of 19th/20th century hand tools soon.

    I have all the original hand tools from the original engineer of the Rocky Point Sugar Mill......most of you reading would not know how to use them.

    These spanners will not be great quality ... they are my favorite type though. There is every size there (so all the odd sizes that manufactures like to use randomly just to **** everyone off are there .... Are you listening Citroen ? ). They are also that cheap you can chop, bend, weld and modify them all you like for one off jobs

    Ive bought quite a few tool pro spanners and ive always been happy with them. Ive bought a few large ones over 1 1/2" and belted the crap out of them with hammers and never had one break. I think they offer a "lifetime" warranty so they have to be up for the task. Bought a few sockets and other odd bits and im normally quite pleased.

    Cheers

    I grabbed a set at a previous sale, as a cheap set for the emergency tool kit they are great.
    Not bad quality for the price and as already said a good range of sizes.
