Cheap at twice the price, what with the ultra-rare '2BA X 4BA TIDDLER'. :D Biggest suprise is this stuff is always 'used'! :) What the heck is the monkey wrench used on? :)

It's used to round off the heads of all of the difficult to reach nuts and bolts that you haven't been able to round off using the specifically sized spanners in the tool roll!

Oh and it's also used to bash your thumb and fingers with whilst trying to use the "screwdriver" to undo/chisel out rusty screws...

Well said Craig. I was thinking for the Nader Nuts on my wheels; would do a terrific job of destroying those! :)

Indeed, I paid ?60 for the same albeit grubby version of the tool kit a couple of weeks ago.

Though I admit to paying silly money for some new Victor FB bezels a few years ago...But then again they haven't been remanufactured.
