Had to make a spanner yesterday as auger hose undid itself. Piggy access, not sure a crows foot would fit in there. Thought I’d butchered a cheap spanner but turns out it was one of Dads 1970s Facom set .. about £30 for a new one and seems hard to find. Guess everyone uses sockets rather than cranked ring spanners these days?

:cool: ... if you'd used a cheapy it'd've just opened up ... can actually buy spanners like this for pipework .... brake pipe spanner instantly springs to mind ;)

Those Stahlwille 440 crowfoots are real handy on hydraulic pipes and valves, much more compact than other crowfoots, but big ££`s in comparison.

Funnily enough I hung my old open end / ring and old both end ring on a board about 2 weeks ago in yard I've only been there 3 times and used them twice already, so much easier when things are organised

bugger !! :mad: ...... fair play to you for putting it up Paul ... even the most careful of us can get 'caught out' .. especially with a 'disinterested' pair of eyes supposedly 'guiding' you :mad: ..... I sincerely hope the rhino bit his arse 🤬

Obviously I realise there’s a fair weight, but in theorywould the crane legs have lifted the unit if you could get decent enough pads underneath?
