    I need a 6-point 22mm Ring Spanner 15th Oct 08 at 9:07 PM
    Can anyone help?

    12 point no good, I fear it might slip.

    6 point socket no good, except open socket for injectors and the like might be ok, but I think they are too expensive, unless you can buy them seperate...<goes to check>.... Hmmmmm some of these prices aren't too bad, maybe it will do.

    What about a 22mm impact socket? 6 point and thick walled.

    Edit: just noticed your looking for an open socket.

    Imagination is a mental faculty that serves as a coping mechanism for those who can't or won't accept reality - unicorns and dragons and wives who don't nag, are all figments of the "imagination".

    dont see many 6 sided ring spanners

    could try searching for line wrench or flarenut wrenches , theyre almost a full ring but with a cut out for pipes

    whats the job you are doing

    is it already rounded so you fear a 12point will slip?

    Can't suggest a six point ring spanner, even slogging spanners tend to be 12 point on the small sizes.

    Craftsman make 6 point combinations, but mainly a US brand.

    Wall drive seems the way to go, maybe Facom OGV?
    Kennedy KEN5823220K is a wall drive 22m combination spanner. 11.43 inc. from Cromwell Tools

    Alternatively the Metrinch types can be good, but it's a bit of a lottery if it's tight or loose on the particular size you want.

    It's an oxygen sensor.

    I think a walldrive-ring or an open socket would be best. 22mm 6 point ring probably does not exist.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Ahh, why didn't you say ? :rolleyes: You can get special sockets for them...

    e.g. http://www.justoffbase.co.uk/22mm-3-8-Square-Drive-Lambda-Sensor-Socket-55540-Draper-DT-OXY

    However, the sensor body is pretty tough, boss (the bit on the exhaust it screws into) is usually stainless steel, and they are supposed to be fitted with anti-sieze... I used to harvest them for the DIY-EFI crowd (Yep, homemade fuel injection ) from scrapyards, and very few gave me any trouble. A good quality 22m open ended spanner and a sharp smack with a deadblow got most of them out. I did pick and choose cars where it was easy to get to though

    Just spotted the last one on this page http://www.cats-direct-shop.co.uk/lambda-sensors.php
    Looks a winner to me - I'd buy one... if I owned anything that ran on petrol at the moment.
