Ask him if he can sort you out.
If not, ask him for Phil Topfer's business and address ( Salisbury somewhere?)
Phill will definately be able to supply everything.
( if I was at home atm, i'd post up Phils details from his business card, but not home for 2 more weeks!)
Or can you wait a bit?

its a little to late for a spanner.........they are too far gone
If they are indeed well and truly stuffed, maybe try a set of good condition vice grips.
Just be sure to lock them on VERY tight then be as gentle as possible.

For future, if rounding flare nuts is a possibility, and you can, or should be able to "feel" a flare nut spanner starting to slip, STOP, and get down to a decent plumbers supply, or tool supply, and grab yourself a "Mini Stilsons" wrench, they are about 5-6" long, the jaws are designed to increase tightness as you increase force on the handle.
A sharpish hit with your palm should release the flare nut.
And if you are a tightarse cheapskate, do the buggered ones back up with the mini Stilsons!!!
