    Which Spanner Wrench?

    Looking to buy a spanner wrench for working on my lenses (attaching retaining ring to lens board tightly).

    Which one is the right size?

    You would be a fool to get one of those pieces of shit. Do yourself a favor and call SK Grimes and ask them to sell you one of their wrenches. About the same price as these and 1000 times better. I have one I got on feebay and it is the best I have ever had, and belive me I have tried them all....

    I'll just confirm the hint - I've got one of those too. Everything else is a waste of time and money.

    Ok emailed Grimes, flat spanner is ordered. No need for a round one at this time.

    Thanks,

    and went to their website

    i am not sure why one is better than the other ...

    might be too late...but edmund scientific has a nifty spanner wrench. it's adjustable and comes with a set of straight, round & bent shank tips, plus 2 center bars that you can adjust the widths of the wrench. the short bar is about three and a half inches in length and the long one is twice that--the working width is about half inch to 7 inches. the tips switch out easily with an allen wrench, and you can vary the length of the arms as well. great set--costs about 60 bucks or so.
