Nut size vs Spanner Size 2

I am doing quite a bit of maintenance at the moment (more on that in future posts).

I had to replace a couple of bolts that were badly damaged but didn’t know the size.  All I had was the spanner/socket size.  Here is a list of spanner/socket size vs bolt size which came in very handy.

Bolt Size Socket/Spanner Size
M3 5.5mm
M4 7mm
M5 8mm
M6 10mm
M7 11mm
M8 13mm
M10 17mm
M12 19mm
M14 22mm
M16 24mm
M18 27mm
M20 30mm
M22 32mm
M24 36mm

    Typo on M24 should have been 36 not 26. All the rest appear correct to me.

    Thanks for bringing typo to my attention though 🙂
