    What, no mention of the spanner?

    Isn’t it the quintessential item among tools that messes things up?

    Best keep it out of the workshop, or it might end up in the works.

    Same goes for Spaniards, or so says some book. ;)

    The only job for a spanner wrench i know of in a shop would be wheel bearing nuts. But they're probably made of plastic these days. :(

    I taught what you in the USA call Metal Shop and Wood Shop for the best part of forty years. (No, esseff, I never taught in the East Midlands.) All "shop" teachers develop eyes in the back of their heads and learn to tell by sound alone when a tool is being misused with the potential result of injury or death. If a tool can be misused then it is certain that at least one student will manage to find that misuse and do it.
    I put the following from Rudyard Kipling's The Secret of Machines on my workshop wall, some students heeded it.
    But remember, please, the Law by which we live,
    We are not built to comprehend a lie,
    We can neither love nor pity nor forgive.
    If you make a slip in handling us you die!
    We are greater than the Peoples or the Kings—
    Be humble, as you crawl beneath our rods!-
    Our touch can alter all created things,

    is that why my metal shop teacher had a coniption when reggie threw the fire crackers in to the hot forge?

    or when Tom washed his hands and shook off the excess water into the crucible of melted aluminum just in time to watch some of the contents evacuate 1/3 way up the wall?
    (these are true shop stories from high school)

    I know it is. I know he does. And yet, everything is still a hammer...
