I used to use a tool like that for disassembling scuba regulators. Certain models would have holes that you would catch with that hook rather than flats that you could put a wrench on.

You know...I was having a really bad day at work. I drove home, a 30 min drive, and was heated by the time I was in my driveway. So I walk into my house turn the computer on and see I have a response to my old thread question so I open it, now I have whiskey that went through my nose and can't stop laughing at your comment...good stuff

Yup.

Spanner wrenches are uncommon these days, and the only thing I see them used on anymore are the adjustable coil overs used in drag race cars and modified imports that sit really low on the ground.

LOL!

No dude, he's yanking your chain. You never heard of the old "left-handed" jokes?

Like tell the apprentice tech to get you a left-handed screwdriver, same difference. Sends him on a wild goosechase.
