In many European countries (eg France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Italy) the adjustable spanner is called an "English key" as it was first invented in 1842 by the English engineer Richard Clyburn. Another English engineer, Edwin Beard Budding, is also credited with the invention.
But not a Monkey Wrench
So there you are Mike should make you happy
I won't go into the Swedish key or the French key :lol:
