The Monkey Wrench - It's hard to believe ...

That the term "monkey wrench" doesn't refer to your trusted repairman - who's always breaking more than he's fixing!!

The "monkey" part of monkey wrench actually refers to a mis-pronunciation of the inventors name, Charles Moncke, an english blacksmith that developed a wrench with opposable, adjustable jaws that could be used to grip almost anything with confidence.
