Whether you are doing routine maintenance or doing up an old car I have what you need, although I do not carry fluids such as oil and screenwash. I carry both imperial and metric sockets and spanners up to 32mm or 1 1/4″ (BSF), and the Whitworth equivalents. Occasionally I get bigger ones but the sockets are usually for 3/4″ or even 1″ Drives. The socket sets are mostly new. To be honest they are fine for domestic use but not designed for heavy duty. A decent set should cost £30+ but, IME people are reluctant to pay it. Most of the old spanners are good names such as Britool, King Dick and Superslim with a smattering of Geodore, Bedford and so on.

Spanners

Open Ended Spanner Combination Spanner Ring Spanner

Combination spanners have the same size at both ends, one ring and one open. The sets I sell are this type but I also have bundles of single make sets that can be just ring or open ended. I have a good selection of metric spanners of all types at present.
