Baconsdozen Imperial tools.

 I sell tools for the restoration,repair or servicing of old,classic,vintage and older cars and motorcycles .

Professional quality Whitworth/BSF ,BA and AF, sockets and wrenches,Imperial AF tools and other handtools for the workshop, I have never sold cheap rubbish and am too old to start doing so now.

I would much rather mess about under an old car type on a keyboard, so this website isn't all singing and dancing,but I know about proper imperial spanner or sockets and old machinery.I have also traded,good quality,sockets,spanners,spray guns,air tools,repair and servicing equipment over the years.The links to the tool pages are below (in black)..

If you have an old truck,classic car or bike that needs TLC or more serious attention I can probably help with the tools you need.

   Other pages,mainly about classic cars etc are scattered about on this site and links to them are below.

If you unsure what tools you need for an old car or motorbike the conversion charts (link above) explain BSW,BSF,BA and AF sizing etc. These explain and compare the various imperial bolt sizes and threads etc. Some metric tools are close to either AF or BSW in a few sizes but for most only the correct tools will fit and avoid damage to fingers and fittings. Personally I dont use the sockets or spanners where each is supposed to fit three or four different sizes of nut and bolt across the AF,BSW,BSF and BA ranges. I don't sell or use them I prefer to use the proper spanners or sockets that the fastenings were designed for. I dont sell cheap low quality stuff either,for the people who "are only going to use it once".
