    Default Looking for a 5/16" flat spanner

    Guys I an replacing blades on a Ryobi thicknesser. The bolts that holds the blade is just smaller than 8mm and I am afraid I'm going to strip them (Like get the heads round). I peresume a 5/16" spanner is the one to have. But where can I get one?

    A 5/16 is 7.93mm and a 8mm spanner should work on it, unless it is worn out. If possible, fit a 8mm hexagon socket.

    Metrinch should work. We have one really good set and one cheaper from Builders. Cheap so to say works.
