Whitworth spanners

From: 	owner-quattro@coimbra.ans.net on behalf of Phil Payne
> Somewhere I've still got some Whitworth spanners.

One of my most useful spanners is marked 1/4W (5/16BS) at one end and 5/16W 
(3/8BS) at the other. I reckon that this spanner is used on more of my 
non-Audi jobs than any other item in my tool kit as it fits both front and 
rear imperial standard tracknuts. For those of you who dont know, a tracknut 
is the fastener consisting of a nut and captive washer that is used to hold a 
bicycle wheel to the frame.
