Pete M Lyr Req: Apprentice Song (Ian Campbell) (26) RE: Lyr req: Come on lads and bring your toolbag 28 Feb 99


Sorry for the delay in getting back, I've had some problems with my Telecom wiring and I'm reduced to using my son's PC at irregular intervals.

Bob is also correct in that to make sense, the punctuation is "...bring your Footprint spanners, chisels,.."; but no Steve they are not refering to Mole wenches. Fitters of that era would not have used an adjustable spanner because of the potential to damage the corners of the nut/bolt head, let alone a griping thing like a mole wrench which chews them up! The only tool of that nature likely to have been seen would have been a Stilson (an adjustable spanner with a head pivoted so that it grips tighter when pressure is applied to the handle) for gripping pipes.
