Hi, I need to get hold of spanners and or box keys for very small metric hex head bolts M1 up. Any idea who actually stocks such things?

This is the best I can find for now: **LINK**



P.S. __ Box Keys / Nut Runners should be relatively easy to find.

I know Model Engineers Laser do laser cut spanners in small sizes (BA I think), they often add to their line up based on customer requests. Assuming they can physically do it they would probably be keen to add to their possible stock list.

For box spanners then GHW go down to 1mm A/F hex (SW is the hex size) they also do small nut drivers which I have several of and they start at 2.5mm hex which fits their M1.6 nuts

They have open ended spanners down to 2.5 hex but their smaller ones the link seems to be broken at the moment but like the box spanners I seem to recall they go down to 1mm hex

Knupfer go down to 1.5mm in open ended spanners and have a similar size range in box spanners/nut drivers

MEL have a standard set from which you separate the individual spanners. They are generic sizes and hopefully you can find one that fits the nut in question. I'm not sure what the smallest size is, can check. I have an excellent local tool shop that stocks a wide range but I'm not sure how small, but if you're in range of West Suffolk they are - don't sell online yet.

Interesting to see that GHW sells Elora spanners yes

So it’s probably also worth browsing here: **LINK**

I have a set of nut spinners for upto 6AF and a set of open and ring spanner’s. The spanner’s are a bit on the thick side but do work. All from that online trader.

If requested I'm sure they could do smaller.
