Multi Function Adjustable Spanners

Filed under: Multi Function — admin @ 11:49 am

It has been common to make adjustable spanners that do more than tighten nuts, they range from the simple square on the end of the handle of a Ford adjustable for removing the sump drain plug to the overly complex
and example found in a patent (GB579210A and CA435204A) which has hammer,file,ruler,screwdriver and glass cutter in addition to spanner duties.

  1. GB579210A was marketed in the U.S. as UTILEX; since that is forged into the handle I suspect those sold in Britain & Canada would be the same.
