    I'm sure she was disciplined severely.
    Buy her some wrenches, to teach her a lesson.

    Thanks to both of you, I have the mini-wrench set, and a thin wrench set on the way. I'll be sending a few friends to Frank if the wrenches are as nice as they look.

    I guess I am the only one who reads www.frankstools.com as a pretty unfortunate URL in the scatological sense.

    Brown & Sharpe is another fine choice. I have old Mitutoyo and old Brown & Sharpe and they’re both excellent.

    This thread is a bad influence.

    More flexibility in less space. Before on top, after on bottom

    Couldnt get the spare of a 4x4 I just bought, as one of the nuts had badly corroded onto the carrier.
    No problem now with a 30" shifter bar.

    Compiled it from a few places.

    Ratchet and Extension: PrestaCycle Pro T-Handle (from earlier in thread)
    Bit Handle: Wera 813
    Bits and Bit Holders were bought individually from mcmaster.com to match the stuff I was replacing.

    The Wera handle is really tiny, so I'm now looking at maybe getting a Wera 816R instead

    Looks like the 816R is about the same size as the 813 which I also have. This one looks like the ticket:
