Here are a couple that I had the pleasure of using this morning ..... (without incident this time).



Pipe wrench - (affectionately otherwise known as a "bobejaan spanner" by South Africans).

A tool that effortlessly deforms threaded steel pipes or fittings that are stubborn to unscrew. Also known to slip when maximum torque is applied, especially useful for skinning knuckles.



Chip hammer

A sadomasochistic welding tool for removing searing hot weld slag and accurately popping it into an open collar or into the top of a boot or shoe, very effective for creating blisters and even ventilating clothing items. Can help to remove chest hair.



Arc welder

Used to heat up steel work for burning the hands of forgetful or unsuspecting persons. The heated work can also be used to alter the tread pattern of rubber soles.



Tape measure

A fun tool to see how far you can extend it unassisted before it collapses. Higher levels of this game are played outdoors and difficulty levels are dependant on wind conditions.
