I'm looking for professional quality offset (cranked) ring spanners for my father, what deals can people suggest?

He's a mechanic by trade so needs to be high quality

You might laugh, but Halfords spanners are good value, they're made by Sykes Pickavant.

You might be better off buying him a couple of Snap-on tools rather than a boxful of cheaper ones

OP whats the budget? Halfords Pro are good but you have to buy ring spanners individually, sets from Sealey / Sigen, Draper Expert, Bacho, Facom are all good brands and of course Snap-on as already suggested

What does he use now?....and I'd say Snap On.

Bahco are part of the snap on group.

I'd go with Bahco or Facom as being excellent quality at reasonable prices. Snap on stuff is overpriced (and I say that even though my brother sells it).

I don't mind spending out something around the £150 mark.
Between us we have a fair few bits of teng, and mac tools along with the odd snap-on item... I have also bought some of the Halfords advanced/professional range

Thanks for the reply however I'm looking for something a bit more professional and he needs a fairly deep crank rather than a slight one

I'm also struggling to actually find the sets, I visited one local dealer for teng and they had no cranked spanners instock at all
