spanner acquisition!

Post by Martin Taylor » Thu May 07, 2015 5:27 pm

Can anyone advise where I can obtain the size of open-ended spanner needed for the M2 nuts that fix the u bolts to the roller angles? I am having to make do with one from a "toy tool set" saved from a christmas cracker many years ago! I have tried all my usual sources without success.
Thanks
Martin

Hi Martin

Cromwell tools have branches all over the UK.

They do an open ended miniature spanner set of their own brand

Part No KEN-582-1010K

They are very good

Hi all, I got a set of 7 spanners to fit some of the small (and unusual) sizes on my Panther.

I was going to post about the Bergen spanners, Tim got thre first! I have found the extra offset really useful for nuts and bolts in hard to get at corners. They are not quite as good quality as the Kennedy or Expo Spanners I have and use primarily, but as problem solvers they are worth every penny, mine cost £3.00 at Alexandra Palace this year.
