Nice photo John!  I also have an (enormous) adjustable in the boot of my car as part of my "scrapyard salvage" toolkit.  It's easier than carrying around the 1-1/2" open-ended spanners and similar needed for hydraulic unions and the like.  Provided it's realised they are an emergency/get you out of trouble aid, that's fine!  🙂

I am equally convinced that the number of tools, of the same size, shape and form is directly proportional to the number of sheds you have.  It is a truism that a tool will always be hiding in a different shed to the one you are actually in, and where the tool is needed.  It thus follows that you must acquire more tools of the same size/shape/form to counteract this effect.  But there lies folly - it  only exacerbates the phenomenon.  The adjustable spanner is like cooking lager (or Fosters as it badged locally) - whilst unpalatable, it serves a purpose.

Absolutely correct. Add to that tool boxes on tractors and plant  and still when you need a particular tool, it's not there. The wander about  checking tool storage in different sheds  storing gear can be gainful often finding the item you were looking for a few days ago.

Thanks, I did not think to look for any markings before I put them back. I was looking for a claw airline connector and they caught my eye.
