    Default Titanium

    Been in the game 20 plus years used every type of spanner exept titanium,so I've got one and some of the lads are saying what a waste of money,I don't understand this as our trade costs next to nothing for tools compared to a chippy or plumber,the way I see it on a good day me and my spanner can earn 200 quid so how can it be a watt of money ?

    A Titanium Spanner is MUCH better then a Steel one.
    Steel ones are shiite.

    Saw my first titanium spanner in the 60`s it was owned by Mick Hawley who was working on the Barrel Vaults Bradford for Mills Scaffolding, thought it was the bees knees but could not afford one on 20 pence an hour

    Default spanner best

    I've been in the game a fair time now tried the titanium spanners did'nt last much more than six months before it fell to bits.
    You can't beat the Leach's Nailspan nice heavy and strong last years i think i'v had one about seven years and used every day not bad for about £40.
    And handy to get those nails out the boards left in from the ******* bricklayers
