16 and 18 mm AF are ISO standard sizes. 17 and 19 are DIN standard sizes for the same threads. The smaller ones are (would you believe?) slightly cheaper.
If I remember correctly, 17mm is almost exactly equivalent to 11/16 AF, and 19mm to 3/4 AF.
11/16" = 17.46 mm, and 3/4" = 19.05 mm, so 3/4" and 19mm are pretty well interchangeable, but 11/16" and 17mm aren't except in an emergency and then only an 11/16" spanner on a 17mm nut, and not the other way round.

What's wrong with mole grips?
Neanderthal.


Sad to admit that something Yankee is better but its ViseGrips all the way.
