I got this last week from the seller via amazon for £9.49 so this is still a good price.

Argos have got it in the sale at £15 ish.

Hot saving.

OK for a DIYer I suppose but if you want quality and a tool that will last forever... Bahco 90-series is the choice of professionals.

:thumbsup:Thanks,ordered one for hubby:whistling:

thanks bahco sounds great bargain

I was looking at this last week but got put off by the content of the 1 star reviews :-(

good price if you must but I wouldn't use it personally, rarely use an adjustable spanner as it is far better to use the correct sized spanner.

gimmick

Can someone explain how this thing differ from this:

Seems like the same thing with fancy plastics, and a high price tag.

I could explain but then again you could read the description :roll:

I would say however that I think its a pretty useless gimmick as how often would using the other hand to tighten be an issue... oops, I gave it away.... :oops:

I have this, it has a motor to adjust the wrench to the desired size... it works ok but is a bit of a gimmick.

good price,hot!

Had it for six months, bought from Amazon at £13. It works VERY well for anything I have used it for, so hot from me.

I had my reservations but so far I have been proved wrong. Always get reviews from people that have used an item, rather than think they know how bad it will be!

I think its a bit of a gimmick and would not buy one, but good price heat added

As I said earlier, it MAY be OK for a DIYer but that's it. If you want a decent Adjustable Wrench then go for this:

screwfix.com/pro…s-8

You won't regret it. The biggest problem with cheap wrenches (and there are a few problems with them), is 'slipping'. The Wrench jaw faces don't marry up with the face of the nut etc to be tightened/loosened resulting in the wrench slipping, your hand getting hurt and possibly damaging materials you are working with.

Always use the appropriate sized wrench for the job. The more torque required, the bigger the wrench needed.

Ordered, thanks

ordered one thanks

bahco are excellent you can really feel the quality and the measurement gauges are a nice feature too...


I don't really understand the point in this black and decker thing...i know its just a gimmick but have we all really got that lazy?

I have one & have just bought another one as a spare , it is incredibly easy to use , especially in hard to reach places where turning the adjustment wheel can be awkward .

Hot

The thing is 1duck, I've worked in Engineering and Construction for many years. Once you have experience of the best tools you never fall for these gimmicks but people who DIY think it's B&D and it's the latest thing so it must be good!

If I have a rule when buying tools it's buy quality. As the saying goes, 'buy cheap, buy twice'. People buy gimmicks and soon realise they're no more than that... Gimmicks. They then have to go out and buy the right tool. I mean this thing is at 240 degrees for Gods sake! :roll: For around £4 or £5 more you can get a Top of the Range Wrench. It's pure madness. I'm fed up offering my advice to people on here. All that seems to matter to the majority is 'is it cheap?' Well the answer is a resounding YES, It's definitely CHEAP!

Sorry Andy, nothing against you pal.

Awesome just bought one for my Dad for Xmas!! Heat Added

dont be disillusioned - some of us appreciated good advice.

you need to bear in mind all the money invested in advertising does work on a lot of people.

Thank you for taking the time to write that Phatboy. Rep'd ya for that. :thumbsup:

LOL you can tell the DIYers from the real trades people on here can't you!

As said above a few extra quid will get you some real adjustables that will deal with larger nuts / fittings and fit in far tighter spaces.

But if you can kid yourself into thinking an electric button allows use in situations where a normal decent adjustable would cause problems then go ahead!

That's the whole point, your a pro so obviously your going to buy quality tools for the average diyer this will be fine, I have over 5k's worth of computer because it's my profession and I wouldnt buy a cheap pc because it wouldnt be able to handle what I need it to do, but for the average punter a cheap pc is fine it's simply horses for courses.

I'm fed up offering my advice to people on here.



We took your advice just over 2000 years ago a look where it's got us:whistling:

A bit off subject but as there are quite a few people in the know here thought I'd ask. Are ratchet spanners any good?

Yeah that's fine when the difference in price is so massive but as I posted earlier Showman, anyone can buy a 'Top of the Range' Wrench for around £4 or £5 more. I'm not knocking DIYer's, I've seen some VERY GOOD work done by some. All I'm trying to do is guide people toward a vastly superior product that is not really that much more expensive. It'll save them money in the long run.

Look, I apologise if it sounds like I'm preaching guys. I truly am just trying to save people money (no one loves a bargain more than me), and point out an alternative. Believe me, if you're thinking of buying this for your dad for xmas etc and he is experienced in Engineering/Construction then he will be over the moon if he receives a Bahco instead.

There endeth the lesson.

As I said, this product will be fine and work perfectly for 96% of it's expected users, so it's hot. Nobody would expect to see a plumber using one of these but hey, it works a dream for the average DIYer, and that is exactly who it's for!

agreed, though we all like and fall for gimmicks....i bought a b&d battery screwdiver...it works well to a point, but i use a manual rachet screwdriver more as its better, tho the battery screwdriver has its uses tho...some of my tools are cheap and nasty and dont last and i rarely use them...the slightly better stuff does last and just feels/works better...dont have any really good tools....maybe one for xmas lol!!

:x I don't know what's wrong with some of the so called experts on here! This wrench looks like a quality tool and I deffo won't be losing any knuckle skin when this slips off a rounded nut.

Anyway, I've just ordered one of these to help with the construction of a new extension to the garage - this should send those joist hangers home no problem!

toolmonger.com/200…er/

:whistling:

I had a good play with one of these in B&Q the other week. Awful thing! Couldn't believe how loose the thumb screw and jaws were and exactly the same materials / feel of a cheap market bargain. Seriously why would you buy this to do ANY job and risk rounding nuts or at the very least making life more difficult?

I would only give this as a present to someone I didn't have much respect for regarding their DIY abilities!

[COLOR="Red"]That right there takes the fluffin ****! [/COLOR]
How lazy must you be for this, does no one have a socket and spanner set, great price considering rrp, but I can see that jaw lasting all of five minutes!
