Will do the job.
on 19 November 2012
I bought these spanners as I am currently clearing out an accumulation of around 40 years of tools and need to get rid of the old and in with the new, flayed knuckles are not an attractive sight!!
I bought these on a recommendation from a car magazine review, (can't recall what one) but I have to say that I am a bit disappointed with them. Not as swan neck ring spanners, they will do the job required of them but the finish on the chrome is far from perfect. They have a number of pits and pockmarks on the chrome work, the chances are that in time they will start to peel from these areas possibly presenting razor sharp slivers of chrome.
I have been very selective about the tools that I have been buying to replace my old well worn ones, paying a little bit extra to ensure that I am buying high quality tools, unfortunately this set has disappointed especially as it was not the cheapest set available my a margin, coming from such an established outfit as Draper these spanners do not represent great value.
