That's a bargain - shame I have already got one similar to that and have bought things like wratchet spanners separately.

Now, if they had been imperial wratchet spanners. I might have looked again! :whistle:

We really should be totally metric by now. So frustrating that we still talk about buying 2"x4" timber that is 3m long!

And driver at an average speed of 40mph :whistle:

It will take at least until our kids have kids before metric becomes the norm - I was taught mostly metric, but my dad in particular was imperial, so I also learnt imperial, my kids are mostly metric, but I still talk to them in imperial - mostly wind them up, but also because that is what I use - though still use metric for some things. Precision engineering still use imperial - its just easier to talk in thousands of an inch than decimal mm.
