A hipster wouldn't know a Whitworth spanner if you hit them over the head with it.

I'd definitely be interested! My collection of oldey worldy spanners is very limited. Especially in the bigger variety. Plus you can never have enough tools.

What have you got?

fuck my boots, that looks like my toolbox!

 

I had to go out and buy my 1st metric set about 10 years ago because all I had was ww from my moggie days and imperial for just about everything else I owned

 

a mate who worked for BT donated a box of king dick imperial sockets about 30 years ago. not broken one yet and I have used them in presses and all sorts
