A quick n dirty crowfoot can be fashioned up by welding a stripped out old socket directly to the wrench handle. I keep a select few old split or stripped sockets about in all drives, 1/4 , 3/8 and 1/2" just for welding to cobbed up tools. I like the crowsfoot in the pic but it would take much more time to fashion, when in a hurry I can weld on a socket in less than 5 mins.Made up plenty of different spanners, sockets etc
put a few grooves in it and you can turn it into a flank drive spanner
Here is a crowfoot spanner I made up out of an old spanner, it had already had the other end cut off it when I got it at a g sale, so cut off remaining handle and tidied it up, then drilled 4 small holes and then the larger hole in the middle, and hand filed out a 1/2" drive point, and opened up the jaws to the required size.
