My recollection from brief visits to Montreal is wonderfully bright winter sunshine coupled with tooth-numbing cold.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Snow blower has both standard and metric nuts.
Surely you mean "standard and Imperial"?

Or Whitworth and SAE or AF    :o :o :o
Everything runs on smoke, let the smoke out, it stops running....

Lucky I got one of these from eBay.




Won't work for me, that's the right handed model.
(PS. My wife's most prized kitchen utensil was a left handed vegi cutting knife.)

I think if you look carefully you will see that one end is right-handed and the other end is left-handed.

But thank you for drawing my attention to that, I was about to buy one.

Bugger, I was hopping you would buy one and let us know if it rounded off the corners of a nut like they are designed to do. :o :o

Whitworth is a thread form like Unified or Acme. But IIRC Unified only uses Imperial measure, inches.

Did you know that Schwinn has their own thread form? Nobody else's parts fit, have to buy Schwinn.

I fail to see handedness in crescent wrenches! The adjustment nut is open on both sides.

What I do see is one head faces more up from the handle, the other more down. Perhaps the bolt that one end can't get on and turn, the other can. The wrench can be flipped or rotated too, might be just the thing in close spaces.

:smiley-cry:   -11°C



2 months from now that may seem balmy. Do you get mid-winter rains that turn everything into ice? It happens Down East. Further south there's complete thaw if there was any freeze to sneeze at. Where used to get feet of snow now gets inches.

I worked with a guy who grew up on the north edge of Ontario. He had a VW bug in HS that had to sit outside the garage. In winter morning for a few minutes the tires bumped until the flat spots unfroze.

You know you really want to be up in Yellowknife, right?

How could I? It didn't make sense. Does this mean you won't be getting one?

"Crescent Wrench"? ? ? ? :o
Its an;
Adjustable Spanner
Monkey Wrench
Shifter
And I'm sure it has some other names given to it when it slips off the bolt. and your hand protects the spanner from any damage  :o :o

Once I realized both ends were not right-handed that was me out.

I always go with the King Dick variety



Yep, nothing better than a king dick nut f**ker...
A creaking creeping shadow
stiff against the freezing fog
glares at a tickless watch.

Time has failed him -- all things shall pass.

No technical PMs.
