One cannot imagine life without hand tools as we need them for every big or small mechanical work. Someone asked me to think of the oldest handtool made by civilized men. I promptly answered that it could be a spanner as, among every hand tool known to us, the spanner is one widely used tool. The history of spanner handtool goes back to the 15th century when mankind was in the transformational era of industrialization and renaissance.
Spanners are essential hand tools, highly recommended for tough and time taking mechanical jobs of loosening and fastening tight bolts. These generally have Long handle with a sturdy grip that makes it best for applying maximum torque on the bolts to be opened. Spanners are interesting and practical tools as these are used by amateurs to professional mechanics, woodworkers, and metalworkers for a variety of works.
