Sealey AK63913 Combination Ratchet Spanner Set 12pc Multi-Coloured, Metric.

Tools Review Sealey AK63913 Combination Ratchet Spanner Set 12pc Multi-Coloured, Metric.

Product reviews
This set of 12 spanners was initially priced at £66 on Amazon, but I found a set on offer, and paid just over £40 for them.

Sizes in this set are : 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19mm. It's good to get a set that include all sizes, not missing 16mm as is often the case.

Here's a close-up of the 13mm spanner....

They were delivered in a plastic tray which would have been handy for storage if it had been a bit better in strength. It was damaged in transit, so its gone, replaced with an oiled canvas tool roll. Because of the damage to the packaging, the contents were a bit scuffed, which doesn't bode well for the finish in use. But, that being said, I am not going to throw them around like the delivery agents did.

I am impressed with the operation of the ratchet, it is very smooth, and positive. They can operate in quite small increments, which is very handy in difficult to reach areas, and tight spaces. I haven't quite got the hang of remembering which way round is tighten, and which loosen, yet. That will come with use.

The open end is positive in fit. Sizes are very accurate, there is no slop when using.

The coatings. What can I say...I like the bright colours. I don't have a set of sockets to match (yet) but I would imagine that the colourways match, which will make selecting a socket to match the spanner will be quicker and easier.

They feel nice in the hand, not too hefty, not too light. They have had a fair bit of use already, and I'm very pleased with them. I look forward to using them for a long time to come.

Splashed out on a set - nice feel, like the ratchet mechanism and the colours make it easier to find what's needed. Stuck mine in a tool roll with a set of gripping ring spanners.

Have to admit, I got a set of matching sockets too.. Will update soon.
Good review, interesting to see a review by a fellow member before buying.
