papawswrench The thread pitch is different , I used to keep a box of them around the bike shop , because the Triumphs and BSAs were always losing them or the owners were abusing them till they were trashed ! Every British screw or nut I found went in that box .

FrankR When I was younger, I read this in an old Cartoons magazine complete with drawings. I never did understand what Whitworth sockets were until I actually came across some on a Peugeot moped. It really stumped the guy at the hardware store when we could not find a nut for something on it.

lowROLLERchevy also add:

Sawzall: a tool thats supposedly used fro cutting material. but more often then not its used to re-injur the wrist you sprained last week while tripping over your extension cord, can also be used for managing to punch yourself in the chest while under the car

Lathe: first tool used to take an oversized bolt and turn it into an undersized bolt

Tap & Die set: Tap, see drill bit reference in the EZ OUT section. Die: 2nd step used on the bolt mentioned in the lathe definition, DAMMIT TOOL is step 3, after retuning to the car to realize you made the bolt 1 size to small

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench at the speed of light. Also removes fingerprint whorls and hard-earned guitar calluses in about the time it takes you to say, "Ouch...."
