Draper metric spanners.
on 3 September 2011
For the money these are quite good, they are not the quality of snap-on, elora or even sealey premier etc, but are no where near the price of the top brands, as an ex-vauxhall dealer mechanic i would consider having these in my tool box but mainly purchased these as a back up set to have rolled up in the boot of the car.
I bought four sets all togethter two metric and two imperial as every bolt generally has a nut as one spanner isn't much good if a slightly siezed nut has a spinning bolt.
The spanner jaws are quite strong and the gripping surfaces are just about hard enough for frequent use although they may struggle after a coulpe of years of hard daily use.
The PVC tool roll sadly probably would not last a week in a proffessional enviroment but it is ok if they are intended for occasional use or as a back up set.
Modern cars do seem to have every conseivable size nut and there are a few sizes missing in this set, so if your working on various makes and models you may need to consider a bigger set with every size between 8mm and 19mm.
All in all these spanners are quite serviceable and i believe a sound investment for the weekend DIY'er or mechanical apprentice starting to biuld up a tool box.
