Newton 9pc ball-ended hex key set

Let's keep it short and sweet: this is a well made, durable and practical set of keys, ideal for use in your workshop, shed or garage. They're nice and long for excellent leverage with a useful holding block which can be wall mounted so you're less likely to lose them. There's a ball end on the long arm for those tricky to reach bolts, and the tolerances are nice and snug.

You get a full set of useful key sizes - 1.5,2,2.5,3,4,5,6,8 and 10mm - and the keys are well made and finished. I have been bike building over the last couple of weeks and these keys have been at hand every day. So far I've built up two bikes using them, and I've really no complaints.

Verdict

Wouldn't be out of place in a pro workshop, which my garage certainly is not!
