A lot of the clues suggest a spanner but the dogs owner is baffling me.

Is that called a master wrench in the US? We just call them an adjustable spanner.

I can't seem to find a Kobalt Master, but they do make a dog bone wrench.

No, we call those Crescent wrenches, well I do anyway.
The master has a "c" shape that floats free and locks on as you torque it like a sliding pipe wrench kinda.

I'm having issues linking pics


I know the ones you mean, look like a good idea but tend to be a nightmare, better to have the right size spanner lol.

Have you round up and what share in the prize do I get

Nah, we just call'em an adjustable wrench, but since they'll fit just about any nut or bolt, they could be considered a master wrench.
Like I said though, I think Mandroid is closer.

Yep, looks like a knuckle buster.

Good question, what prize will we get?

Leave out the 6 inch part. It could be a nine inch too.

If you win drinks on you.

It has to be exact, like down to the finest detail.
I remember last week, someone left out something so stupid and lost. The next caller got it because they brought that detail in.

Get with the times dude, In the UK we have double ended adjustable spanners so one end is metric and the other is imperial.

They cost a bit more but having the option of both is very handy.

Then say 10 inch. Less than a foot, crescent wrenches come in those three sizes, foot long, (10 inch) and 6 in.

Curve ball: None of those open to two inches wide though. A Pipe wrench does.

you crazy folks across the pond have everything. And it does sound way more official when you say "imperial" as opposed to "standard". Gives us a touch of class.
