What is it with Claas and 16 and 18mm spanners? Not needed to use them on anything else.

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?


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


Best thing about Facebook is the logout button...
