I recently picked up a couple of cone spanners made by Sugino, the Japanese component manufacturer, at a second hand store in Switzerland.
They are in immaculate condition and only the 13mm spanner seems to have ever been used (maybe once?).
Does anyone ever use the 14 or 16mm spanners? I have never owned a hub that uses them. Would be great if 13 and 15 came on a single spanner, as they seem to be the most common, but then they’d sell fewer tools!
I already have a bunch of cone spanners but these will go nicely with my 1985 all-Japanese Fuji Del Rey. It has Sugino cranks after all. They are really nicely made, and in far better condition than the Fuji itself…
Any idea when they date from?
I’m guessing 80s-90s, as the internet isn’t yielding much in the way of info.
Remember, you can never have too many tools.
