Re: Locking adjustable spanner

I can see that the slimness of the tool could be an advantage but in that case surely a conventional adjustable, closed up tightly enough that it has to be lightly hammered home, would serve the same purpose. However, it does now seem to be a mainstream tool.

Another new insulin

https://scitechdaily.com/new-ultrafast-insulin-for-faster-management-of-blood-sugar-in-diabetes/ In the past few years we've seen a bewildering array of new fast acting insulins such as Humalog: Actrapid: FIASP and now this new one.
