A Christmas present for Percy

A man cannot have too many spanners in my opinion. Especially when that man has a large narrowboat and a large motorcycle. I have a selection of spanners already aboard Percy but not the range I wanted so Screwfix Santa delivered these earlier today.

Metric and imperial ring and open ended, ring and ring combination and open ended.... a spanner heaven. 6mm to 25mm 1/4 inch to a full inch a spannerist delight.

A wrench (also called a spanner) is a tool used to provide grip and mechanical advantage in applying torque to turn objects—usually rotary fasteners, such as nuts and bolts—or keep them from turning.

Not sure I like the term wrench, prefer spanner for tool terminology. 'He spannered her from her lovers arms' does not really work, so lets leave wrenched to the novels and keep spanners in the garage or engine room.

Now I have these the only downside is I might have to move some ballast as the roll of wrenches spanners is quite heavy.
