August Theme Day - Metal

I know the tools behind are called spanners. What about the ones in front? I took this shot from a car workshop. Sometimes I think the mechanics are like Inspector Gadget. They seem to have all the tools to reach and fix any part of the car.

This is great. Fabulous patterns created by the tools. No I don't know what they are called. Aren't they all spanners/ Perhaps not. Nice choice and nice photo.

The right tool for the job makes the task much easier to do. I don't know the name of the ones in front. I know what they do, but I don't know what they're called. The watcha-ma-callit...

Glad I don't have to figure out how to use these. Creative photo!

I can't remember what those tools are called, but that's a very cool picture!

Happy Theme Day!

Oh yes! Wheel brace (in English) and wikipedia tells me in American it's a lug wrench.

Sally said...

Me again (soory!) On second thought I don;t think it is cos the nut remover part is in the middle, whereas a wheel brace has them on the ends of the rod parts.
