  • A real spanner!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Yes, this is a real, if tiny, adjustable spanner (wrench). And it really is made from (slightly magnetic) stainless steel, not some crappy pot-metal zinc alloy, so it won't break easily or make your hands smell funny.

    Cons:

    Maximum jaw opening is only about 8.5mm - a third of an inch. The screw part is a cheap casting with mould lines still on it, so you'll have to attack it with a small file or something if you want the adjustment to work smoothly. Because it's steel, you can't file it very easily; I used a Dremel sanding disc on mine.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    This is not just a one-piece pot-metal charm-bracelet keyring doodad. It really is an actual working spanner, suitable for use on any fastener that's small enough. Computer case screws and brass hex motherboard stand-offs, for instance.
