RE:MH baler
Alan,
Perhaps one shouldn't get too pedantic about these things but the Oxford dictionary gives a spanner as:
"tool for turning nut on bolt"
and a wrench as:
"violent twist or oblique pull or tearing off, tool like spanner for gripping and turning nuts etc"

So perhaps my interpreation is not too far off  spanners for the normal applications and a wrench for mor violent work!

So what have N Americans to say on the matter? - and indeed those from down under.

Perhaps you can put those funny folk in Norfolk on course correction and pack them across the Atlantic!!!!!!!
