An easy way to strip your nuts. Any real engineer or mechanic would baulk at using one of these ( or any adjustable wrench). If you do have to use an adjustable wrench, does it really need to be battery powered? Can you not just turn the thumb screw on a £2.50 manual adjustable wrench?

sounds good

Yeah, pointless tool. Whatever next, a battery toothbrush (oh, yeah so they did)?

Now this I can voucher for as a genuinely superior adjustable - for professional use too:

How is it going to strip the thread (or in your terminology "nuts" ) ?
Admit it, you haven't a clue what you're on about :roll:

My problem is that you make a statement without offering any evidence to support it!

I don't work for B&D or Pentagon Direct and I'm not making any money out of posting this deal. I've posted it to let my fellow members know that in my opinion it appears to be a good deal. However as in all cases nobody can be 100%. What I am 100% certain is I don't care whether you buy it or not, but others may make a decision based on facts rather your baseless statements.

Move on Pal!!

LeeIW I didn't say thread because I didn't mean thread! Ask any competent engineer about an adjustable spanner and they'll say they won't use them. They don't hold tight and so they round the corners of ( or strip) the nut.

My mates dad was a chief engineer on a tanker and the first thing he did before they set off was to go through everyone's toolbox and throw all the adjustables over the side.

Seems like a great engineer to me.

repeated use of these tools will round of nuts. They do have their purpose, however and should be restricted to pipework and low torque applications.

They will ROUND ( not strip) your boltheads and nuts with repeated use and should never be used above a socket or spanner. That is just folly. Good price compared to what they were, (used to be £25) but completely pointless and should be £3 max, as the quality of these is awful. Having the electric application ensures they never get as tight as they could.

The electric toothbrush takes the labour out of a labour intensive task, which spending 5 secs adjusting a tool isn't really comparable!

This will come in handy.

Not if it's been sitting in your toolbox for six months and when you come to use it you find that the batteries are flat!

Couldn't the same be said of ladies things that are stuck in drawers. ;-)

These are ok if all you want to do is tighten the nuts on your kids bike, and then watch as the wheel comes off your kids bike on a hill.
Seriously though, it's a good price for a poor product, a guy at work came in one day showing his off, and proceeded to scalp his knuckles on his first go. Needless to say, it went in the bin.

all this engineers never use adjustable s stuff is laughable:roll:
'Coney' is half right, in that a "poorly adjusted" Adjustable spanner 'could' eventually round off Nut/bolt heads....

HOWEVER... a correctly adjusted BACHO ADJUSTABLE is EXTREMELY unlikely to round off anyones NUTs.... you get what you pay for :thumbsup::thumbsup:

and the right size adjustable should be used too, a 12" Bacho on a 4 or 5mm nut could well end up causing damage, but used on a 17mm,19mm,24mm (and more importantly 30mm bolts ) they are extremely handy.. Its horses for courses, if you have access to a full tool-kit in a workshop, then obviously you use the correct tool for the job, no question, but the idea that all the readers of HDUK are top engineers looking for tools is laughable....

and while I'm at it, the 10" and 6" Bahco's are sweet too...(the ergo reversibles are a great handy tool for an engineer travelling light.

For a diyer/ home use (probably a much greater section of the HDUK readers) a "BAHCO" adjustable or two would be a great purchase....

For the record, No I wouldn't want one of these, as It just seems so unwieldy, and I wouldn't trust it, but I can see that for a handy tool for an arthritis sufferer for instance, to get them out of a muddle, at this price point its possibly worth a punt....
(I can say this as I haven't handled it.... It may well be crap, but I can't say that if I haven't tried it now can I ;-)

Why not? How does not being lazy and picking the right tool for the job constitute not being much of an engineer?

spanners and sockets beat adjustable's EVERY time, just not as portable.

Was the gay lover bit a Freudian slip too? Just wondering what the relevance was that's all..

Good price for a poor product.

Bacho all the way :thumbsup:

I used it before and I have to agree with the guys complaining of the poor quality.
It could be useful for light application, but you will not be impressed when it comes to even connect an elbow on 22mm copper pipes.
