Hi all,

Before this thread is locked i'd like to thank everyone for their honest feedback. I haven't posted in a while due to time restraints but have contributed in other areas in terms of freebies etc.

It's good to have a site run and supported by true enthisiasts.

Cheers
:-)

I have just put a set of the Roebuck uniwrench spanners through their paces and they are very good :thumbright:

I'll do a proper review when I get the time, but I have just used them at work for two plant shutdowns and they are an excellent piece of kit.

I have a set of Teng spanners at work and the Roebuck are much better quality :wink:

The feel of the spanner and the quality of the chrome plating. Also the Roebuck spanners have a spline at the ring end and so they grip much better than normal ring spanners.

The Roebuck spanners are also a good inch longer than their teng counterpart, meaning you can get more leverage on them.

Could you please explain the bolded part? It means litteraly nothing to me.

The rest all makes sense. I knew, the 'feel' of the spanner would be there, I just was wondering if there were other technical things, which there obviously are.

At the ring end there is a spline, which grips the hexaganol heads more effectively, so effectively that they can grip heads that are rounded off upto 70%

The open end of the spanner also has special teeth at helps to grip rounded off heads-
