Spanners: Indispensable Hand Tools
Spanners, although a vary a bit in shape and size, are used to execute the same functions as other ratchets and sockets that is, tightening and loosening of fasteners. However, within this eco-system of spanners, sustains a number of differences, for instance a box-end spanner proves to be an appropriate tool for loosening of wedged fasteners without damaging the ratchet mechanism. Whereas, an open ended spanner works wonders as it firmly fits around the fastener instead of over it. This provides a much needed avenue to slip your spanner into a tapered space, where there is not enough space for a socket to be pushed in.

Double Open End Spanners
The double open end spanner is amongst the most widely used spanners pertaining to its broad practicality. The head of the spanner has its jaws counterbalanced by about 15 degrees from the root of the shaft. To an extent this is because it provides the spanner with the flexibility to turn over and, engage with different faces of the nuts. This comes as a boon, when performing tasks in confined spaces. Moreover, when it comes to working in cramped spaces, there is another breed of spanners, known as, half-moon or, obstruction spanners, which are highly suitable when working in in capacious spaces. These spanners have one head designed such that they appear to be 90 degrees to the shaft, in addition, the shaft might also sport a subtle curve.
Emulating its name, this type of spanner generally has a completely blocked and enclosed head, featuring either six or, 12 flats. There is not much of a distinction between the two, however, the one that exists is that 12 flats ring spanner engages upon corners of the nut, both, on hexagonal, as well as square bolts. A six flat ring spanner is usually crafted to fit against all 6 sides of hexagonal nuts, this ensures a firm fit and, permits a considerable amount of force to be applied.
