Friday, I posted a tool that I had trouble identifying and asked the readers have a guess at its function. Today, I’ll post all the information I have about the tool.
GEDORE, the makers of this tool, say on their site:
- For bathroom fittings attachment (stud screws) M10 or M12
- Open end spanner size 17×19 mm
Unfortunately this is the sum total of the information they give — they don’t even supply a picture of the business end of the cylinder.
Looking through the comments, russ came closest first with his comment on January 7th, 2011, at 11:44 am:
A 14mm / 17mm wrench is pretty common in my work with German equipment. The attachment looks like something for bathroom fittings -screws probably somewhere around M10 (not certain on the size though). I saw something similar to this a while back in Germany but I don’t need it in my line of work.
The most creative use comes from 99octane:
Obviously the center piece fits in an electric drill, and it’s used to mix paint…
Now all I need is a plumber to tell me exactly what bathroom fittings (stud screws) are and how you use this tool.
