Super! That sheet is a good idea for stopping the box sliding on the wood too .

Whilst it is out of harm[ing] way, under a table, now, I have stubbed my toe on my toolbox a few times in the past. Perhaps I should have coated the whole thing in soft rubber!

By the way, re the dewatering pump in my earlier post: I bought a couple of rubber doormats to stand that on, as it vibrates and tends to walk on a hard, flat surface. I think they will reduce noise too.

Just got a combination spanner set from PayTm during the 50% cashback offer. Not finding the listing again as another friend needs one.

Same link on Flipkart. Not able to get the link I saw on SnapDeal.

On Flipkart

Contents:

6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 17mm, 19mm, 22mm

Here are the pictures:

I'm searching for a 27 mm Hex socket bit with T bar handle.

I'm getting confused when I search online for Hex bits because I'm able to see 27 mm bits which has too many teeth's in it i.e multiple sides. The Hex socket I'm looking for needs to have just 6 sides so that it matches the nut I'm trying to unscrew.

Can anyone help me identify this socket and where can I purchase it online ?

Found a cheap alternate here. May not be exactly what you want. There are other kits there or on flipkart with the 27mm but it is a set, which you may not need.

Thanks diyguy , the socket size is correct but something like the T-bar with this socket is what I'm looking for. I don't mind buying the set if it's around 2,000 Rs.

Something like the below

Not a hundred percent sure, but usually a normal socket should fit? Or just invest in an universal filter wrench. http://www.ebay.com/bhp/universal-oil-filter-wrench

Cheapest I found was below:

http://www.tolexo.com/taparia-hexago...are-drive.html

You'll need "Socket Set Contains: 8,9,10,11,13,14,17,19,22,24,27,30,32 Accessories 1753,1734,1763,1633" "S-23H X L" part.

My honest advice wold be to just go to the local tool store, buy a 1/2inch L bar, 10inch extension rod and a 27mm socket. Wont cost above 450rs for all 3.

I have two of these universal wrenches that can take any shape. My dad had purchased them and I have found it very useful when I don't find the right tool size or shape.

The set sunnyboi pointed out is reasonably priced and will meet your needs.
