Just do your best to avoid those horrible combination spanners which have taken over the planet. You need to carry twice as many as you do if you have a set of open ended plus a set of rings. Because when you undo a nut and bolt with a combination spanner, you find that when you have the ring on the nut you now have nothing to hold the bolt head with.
Also: BSF and Whitworth use the same size spanners on different size nuts - so the spanners usually have both markings at each end.
Thank you for your support...
