Richard William Ineson replied to Anthony Derycke's discussion tightening keys for an old Alfred Weaver?
"These are the tools that came with a Weaver banjo, you got one spanner/wrench and a screw driver. Tow types of wrench and an unusual typr of screwdriver with a wood inset in the handle. All very rare nowadays."
