But if they’re not cranked (and they don’t look to be) you just turn them over?

Don’t understand, why would the spanners need to be reversible?

 never got to a point where you cant remove the spanner from a shouldered bolt? and you cant wind the bolt back in as the ratchet only works on way. that why i like the ones with the switches. though those tend to be the ones with the cranked end

I've had my flex head non reversible ratchet spanners stuck a few times as you wind a nut or bolt out in a restricted space - hacksaw time!

Can’t say I’ve ever got one stuck. Must’ve just been lucky!

Looks good enough to put in the back of the van to take to the track. Do the plastic liners come out of the draws? I assume it came with the tools?

some trays removed as i am getting around to sort out the tools as i want.

been looking at the ratchets they seem to be the same as some reasonable named ones out here selling for about 20-30 euro each.

the socket depths are a bit short in some cases.

Where is the draw of bit's and bobs?

 

I used a bunch of these for my spanner draw. They can be cut to length and have a grippy rubber tape on the bottom for friction to stop them sliding about in a roll cab.
