After working on airplanes I've found it's often permissible to
sacrifice (modify or build) a tool or tools to fit.
I bend handles, grind down the wrench itself to fit the space or have
some one put the wrench on a surface grinder the thin the head to fit
into tight spots. I have some rather strangely shaped wrenches and some
homemade that look positively crude. The key is, they work.
