RE:MH baler
I dare say that the term "spanner" would never have entered our vernacular over here were it not for our good friends from across the pond.  Who knows how/when/where that change in terms came to be, but suffice it to say it happened well before my days on this earth! 

One question:  When it comes to the left-handed, metric, adjustable "wrench", would you guys still call that a spanner?!?   :-)

For that matter, I have always thought the term "spanner" was best suited to the "adjustable wrench" as it could "span" across several bolt head and nut sizes...

Yes?  No??
