More new Bling
« on: May 20, 2016, 11:44:33 AM »
Hi Guys, and Girls. It isn't very often I find myself praising cheap tools. My recent purchase of a set of  long spanners, by Nielsen. Has impressed me enough to buy another set. I choose a set of Aviation wrenches. Five extra long ring spanners, Nielsen CT3119.(CT1119 on some listings?) They really are exceptional spanners, especially for the inclusive price of £19. The quality and feel of the spanners is very, very good. These would be a great additions to anyone's tool chest. Check them out on the web. H.

A little update on the cheap Nielsen spanners purchased.
They have survived, admirably. My 85kg body weight, bouncing on the end of the spanner.
Not something I would recommend, but needs must at times. I'm still impressed, and very very happy
with my purchase. Check them out. H.

I think it depends on what you choose.
A lot of tools with cheap brands are exactly the same as better branded products just packaged differently.
I did buy a set of nielsen locking wheel nut removers which were absolutely useless not up to the job. In the end i just bashed a socket on - Much easier  ;D
