I have a set of Halfords ratchet spanner’s they have been very good they are hinged at the end , essential I’d say .
I have a set of Halfords, a set of Britool normal combination and a set of Britool that has 2 sizes per end. They all have their uses depending on the job in hand. Ideally they all stay in the cabinet though and I use the impact gun ;)

I’m not sold on them myself but thought it worth sharing. Some of my spanners managed to grow legs and walk during the autumn so am on the look out for a set as it seems better value to buy a full set than replace what’s missing. Likely end up with Teng or perhaps Halfords professional, I really rate elora spanner’s but those will have to wait for a lottery win !


Not sure if I’ve recommended them on here before but Truflame in Sheffield are good price on welding wire and grinding/cutting discs (Klingspor)

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
