    Hi, Has anyone got any experience of these tools? I have a kitchen tap that has a 30mm nut underneath which I cannot get to as it is so tight. I was looking for a 30mm box spanner but came across the above. This would make more sense to buy but some reviews say the gears slip. Cheers Lee

    Where possible I always use box spanners but that is just my opinion. They get a better grip on the union or back nut

    I have an open ended spanner for single pillar taps which i have grinded in half small enough to get upto tap...one of the most useful tools . Same again then for tap connector nuts.
    The angled spanner doesnt last long, slips and you cant get much leverage on it.

    A 30mm socket. Not cheap. Think I am going to go with a box spanner
