Whitworth tools are pretty uncommon these days, _none_ of the discount
houses carry them any more, and only a very few of the quality
suppliers. Some places that do :
http://www.snapon.com/ (socket sets only, I believe)
I'll also mention Paddock Spares in the UK, but I bought several of
their Whitworth wrench sets with the intention of reselling them (at
cost) to local TR3 owners. The apparent quality is pretty low, and
about the second one I picked up was simply not the correct size.
Because of the quality (and general laziness), I haven't offered the
sets to anyone. Paddock Spares is at :
Most of the Whitworth sizes do not have common equivalents that I find
acceptable. The size you asked about is 1/4" Whitworth, which takes a
nominal .525" wrench. 14mm is the next larger common size, but it's
pretty big, is very likely to round the head.
NFI in any vendor (except me <g>)
