    Hi All,

    Have recently passed my C&G Level 2 and am shortly to start on my gas. I'm currently out doing small jobs at the weekends until I finish work and start learning the plumbing ropes full time.

    I'm starting to build up my tool kit and at the moment only have some cheap adjustable spanners which are a nightmare when I'm upside down under a sink. Am just wondering what ones everyone uses? Seen a set of Rothenbergers that come with covers to go over the jaws for when using chrome.

    Cheers

    Mike

    Rubber handled bahco.

    Also, when you're feeling flush, get a couple of flat jawed knipex pliers.

    Monument do fixed jaws 15mm and 22mm spanners. Available from toolstation.
