Had some old american agricultural machines to do bit of overhaul and needed nice full set of AF spanners as my old set seen better days & no longer compete,
don't use AF imperial much so thought get something low cost, looked around at usual stuff like draper, kamasa then spotted siegen spanner range.
liked look of them as similar style to snap-on but little less bulky plus walldrive on the ring too, Finnish is good even in jaws & ring, also after trying them & measuring them  the tolerance in sizing appears very good, gripped some quite worn rusty nuts & bolts with no drama.
only around £1 to £3 a spanner & cheaper if can get as set. they do long short & standard length in metric so worth a look if after some cheap but ok spanners.
Siegen appears be budget brand of sealey but these polished walldrive range of spanners are a worthy budget buy.

Also got set of yato swivel socket spanners in same shop, quite good design with strong pin bolt & coil spring in shallow bore so socket holds at angle you set & ok quality, do need see & select though as tend find odd chrome finish defect, set of 8 cost me about £20 , they have factories in thailand so quite cheap.
will add some pics for reference.

^ quite handy sometimes for access/allowing turning space for wrench on bolts on flanges on large piping such as manifolds - exhausts- coolant housings, not one get used a lot but can be a job/time saver when do .
Metric long spanners are damn handy, one of those that you use way more than would expect. I see on the uk sites it say lifetime warranty ! no idea on details of that as nothing on my labels said about warranty .

Just popped in aldi with my mom and picked this set of spanners up for £7.99 size 6 to 22.

Worth a punt at that price i thought.
