    AF spanners are getting rare in the shops these days.

    If any good to you, I might go to Newark but definitely be at peterborogh if that helps.

    I still have all my Gardner Whitworth spanners - some right looking weird ones for the 8LXB's, bent ones for all sorts of jobs and ones with a flat on one end made for hammering.

    Those were the days lad......:Laughing:

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    I've still got a more less full set of A/F sockets. They fit metric nuts quite well if you have a large enough hammer.

    AF spanners are useful to me as I have a lot of very old equipment. But they are heavy I guess, still if you are ever in Devon I'd love them.

    Hi, if you know any body going to the peterborogh show or Newbury I could give them to them for you. Just thought better for some body to get some use. Out of them. :Smile:
