I just can't wait for one of these to snap and for all the skin on my knuckles to be sliced off on the edge of a dirty engine.

Cheap spanners like this are a false economy. Whilst we can't all go out and buy Snap-on, Britool or King Dick, we really should think twice before buying rubbish. Even for just occasional use, the potential for hurting yourself with cheap tools is massive.

I have been swinging on the cheapest of spanners for over 30 years and never managed to break one yet. Only problem with cheapo spanners is they can tend to 'round off' the nut or bolt you are trying to remove. However, unless you buy a professional tool set the rest of them are all basically the same. So if you need some spanners these are as good as pretty much all the rest of the tools available for the DIY end of the market.

Mmm.... i prefer to keep away from Snap-on and King Dick!:giggle:
Made from chrome vanadium steel, I think these are fine for DIY jobs
I am not a fitter or mechanic!

And some in the middle, and if it doesnt fit hit it with a hammer (a good quality one as the potential for hurting yourself with cheap tools is massive):-D

I'm not so sure these are the typical "monkey metal" spanners you find in bargain basements, as Oddfellow might be inferring. For the price, I'd be tempted to give them a go.

Then again, if quality spannership is what you need, you'll probably already have a quality set in your toolbox already.... no?

tat at the right price ........................ so hot :w00t:

I've managed to snap a cheap spanner from wilkinsons. Was only something like a 6mm one anyway.
#10
If you aint broken spanners yet you aren't trying hard enough :roll:

I've broken rakes of em and won't buy cadbury tools like this any more but for the occasional DIY'er they should be OK.

For true money saving, if you are going to use these often, i can very highly recommend Halfords own brand. Made by Sykes P i believe. Had a set for 15 years, and because they are so good, i look after them and not lost one piece out of my 150pc set.
Bought a couple of cheap sets like this tesco one over the years (its a legal requirement to have a tool set on board in most of Central and Eastern Europe) and all i can say is NO. Got a great scar on my little finger after it went straight into the exhaust manifold after i snapped a 12mm spanner in two.
I can also second the opinion that cheap spanners and sockets simply dont fit bolt heads properly leading to rounded heads, blood, sweat and a lot of shouting.

That is subjective. There's nothing in this deal that suggests the cheapness reflects on the build quality

You would probably get more for it for scrap metal weight! Voted hot.

Not sure why this has been votted hot!! i went through checkout and then went to the collect at my local store option and now it says:

Free collections available on orders of £25 or more. Click here to continue shopping. Collect from store currently only available in a limited number of stores so my total bill is £6.20 :( ill be voting cold

Maybe the fact they are making a proffit at £1.35 let alone £2.70 would indicate these are of tripe quality. I would like to point out that nutts with rounded heads due to using such tools are harder and more expensive to remove than using proper tools in the first place.

Use these for non seized nutts and you will be ok, but anything thats had weather at it for a year or two then dont bother.

Pound shop spanners thats what these are :whistling:

A fellow Skoda fan :w00t: :-D

Interesting the Halfords own are Sykes Pickavant. B&Q sell spanners branded something like Magnusson I think which seem to be as good quality as Halfords brand spanners but a bit cheaper.

To get free delivery you have to order a Simcard at the same time and then return it to store for a refund.An old trick and has been posted on here for along time.:whistling:

You're a truely lucky fellow.

Wait until it happens in a dirty environment where all the nasty stuff that gets into the open wounds on your hands causes an unplesant infection. And whilst you're off at the sink with the Savlon, you're not completing the job.

It's the casual DIYer that's most at risk from bad tools - he's not expecting them to snap - he's just pleased with the bargain he's got. Until that ring spanner breaks open under force that is.

Hey, here's the solution. These are so cheap, why not buy three sets so when you break the 15mm, there's another left to continue the job with rather than having to go out and buy a decent tool.

I tend not to use ring spanners on overly tight nuts, prefer to use a socket set and a long breaker bar. So tend to agree that not good practice to use these on very tight nuts. Then again I would not use my more expensive spanners either as they can slip off the nut and leave you lying face down in a pile of oily ****.

If---BIG If, I was happy to risk my knuckles on these I would have been happy to pay the £2.70. Saving a quid isn't going to make me get all excited and buy.
