Saw a spanner wrench on another forum by Stockton Tool company that works in tight space but the connection for a 3/8" ratchet is sloppy. The guy actually welded to an old ratchet to make it work. Cycle gear sells it with mixed reviews due to sloppy fit to wrench. Here is the cycle gear web page:

Looked on line and found some similar ones

This on at motorcycle-superstore looks like the same thing with different name. No reviews on their page.

This one at motorcycle-superstore would work the same. Only one review that is not positive because it bent when used.

Definitely the right idea if someone makes it of good quality and strength.

weld two together ? Heat and quench to harden up? Weld a socket on it ?

How about a carriage bolt with a square shank to engage the square cut-out in the wrench and a hex nut on the carriage bolt to allow the use of a box end wrench?

Buy one, take it to the metal shop that does the Fuzzy Washers, and have them use it as the template to make one with thicker steel plate.
