Post Great Economical Quality Valve Adjustment Wrenches

I was looking at the most economical valve adjustment wrenches for the 65-85 year non hydraulic lifter model mercedes diesel (I own a 84 300d) and couldn't believe how much they cost. Plus they don't even nest together and the head of the wrenches are too thick for their own good. I've put together a really nice tig welded 14mm wrench set (2) with good handles and end stops for $45 shipped. Can't beat that. Email me if you are interested.

What brand of wrenches do you start with? I made up a set using chepo wrenches and one of them went from 14mm to about 16mm after a few years use.

valve wrenches

I'm using a Urrea wrench which is a quality hardened non "drop Forged" china wrench. I like them.
