  1. I have my electrical and gas licences, and I’m looking for a decent set of ratcheting wrenches. I don’t mind spending money on a quality set since I’ve always considered money spent on a decent tool was a good investment. Any recommendations?
  2. I'm looking for a good set of spanners/wrenches that are tight fitting and was hoping some of you could provide some measurements and first hand experience. I have a set of Stanley combination spanners but they don't fit too well and tend to round off the nut. The 13mm open end measures 13.21mm and 15mm measures 15.22mm. I have a single Kincrome 13mm that measures 13.10mm. This spanner works very well. Some cheap store brand spanners I also have (ToolPro) are loose fitting also measure about +0.22mm greater with each size. So perhaps +0.1mm is the magic mark for good fitting spanners. The cheaper brands (from 2 of my samples) seem to be upwards of +0.2mm, which results in a loose fit. Can anyone provide a recommendation and measurements of some good fitting brands? I assume top brands fit well but was hoping someone could provide some first hand evidence. To help decide I have ordered a single spanner from 5 different brands so I will post measurements when they arrive (Sidchrome, Facom, Britool Expert, Gearwrench, Stahlwille, Teng). Thanks
