    I've always know them as a 'podger-ended' spanner, or just podger. That's a new one on me.

    I've got one of those big-ass spud wrenches used for aligning i-beams. Long long ago a family member used it at American Bridge to erect steel railroad bridges. that must've been a little over 100 years ago. A little known fact is that Chicago is the drawbridge capitol of the world.

    "I happen to have an original 1955 Stratocaster! The neck and body have been replaced with top quality Warmoth parts, I upgraded the hardware and put in custom, hand wound pickups. It's fabulous. There's nothing like that vintage tone or owning an original." - Chuck H
