Makes me think of that advert  where the kid says  "   Accrington Stanley  Who are they ???"

 

Metal conduit !!! Whats that  !!  Hope you don't get those modern bushes that fall through a 20mm hole  and  are so thin  "   Some of these here politicians could 'a seen through 'em " 

 

Need any tallow???

CEFs 20mm couplers were about twice the thickness than Screweys and had much thicker galv last time I bought some. Twice the price mind!

 

Don't forget your pliers for deburring!  :)

Bushking did both bush and locknut spanners I gave mine along with metric and imperial stocks and dies to Glennsparks.

 

As bush and locknut sizes got smaller the spanners became a finger trapper. It’s got to be 25 years since I last used them.

 

Remember metric/imperial conduit adapters?

Had to rake through my my odds and sods tray to find a 3/4 20mm adapter last year, found one as well. It was when I was rewiring my 1960's Colchester lathe, the motor had a 3/4" threaded entry into it.

Reckon I put that adapter in my odds and sods tray 30 years ago, that tray has got me out of a sticky situation on many occasions.

Lost my bush spanner the other day, think it was a bush king or a king dick? tango'd labourers probably chucked it the scrap pile, It wasn't that great for modern bushes anyway. was looking at the ck wrench when I came across this:

You stuck for a bush spanner? There were a couple in a box of goodies I inherited. Dead man's tools etc but I'm sure he's happy they're living again!
