I'm on the hunt for a couple of open end wrenches that are on the thin side.

5/32" and 9/32" or 8A and 3A British

I have a clearance issue.

I found Snap-On english ignition wrenches but they are a little too thick. Snap-Ons are .125" thick. I am looking for .09-.100 thick.

I am specifically looking for stock items. These cannot be modified after purchase for particular end user requirements.

Anybody know of any electronics tools or others that might fit the bill?

Get a grinder and grind down the wrench to the thickness you need.
I do it at work all the time.

Thanks for all of your help. I ended up getting special wrenches fabricated as these need to be stainless steel for a salt spray environment. (V-22 Osprey support equipment)

buy the ignition wrenches from sears you can get them at snap on also but they are a lot more and for the helis you are just as well off with the crafstman wrences.

I ended up having to design a custom set out of stainless steel. Thanks everyone for the links. It got a little more complicated than just a simple wrench.
