What's Wrong with This Picture?

This picture is from an ad for an automotive mechanic training school:


Guesses?

AC & Og would know, but I wonder if my five four readers will figger it out.

Every time I see it it bugs me... must be a crappy school.

(Update tomorrow if nobody gets it.) 

UPDATE: We have a winnah!  (see comments)

I don't know about you, but I've never used a crescent wrench under the hood. But that's me.

I can't see it well eoungh, but it 'looks' like he's using a Crescent as a hammer...

Ding Ding Ding!

Zerc get it out of the gate. What mechanic (assuming he has actual tools) would use an adjustable wrench when he didn't NEED to?

Or maybe it's a 'special' wrench for adjusting the finagler bearing...

Heck, I figured it was a left handed monkey wrench and he was using it with his right hand;)

Old NFO said...

LOL, okay, I blew that one!!! :-)

I wondered why mechanics bought the giant red toolboxes when all you need is one Crescent wrench for everything!

Well Old NFO, he might as well be using it as a hammer. Or a screw driver for that matter.

While an amateur mechanic might (not should) use a Crescent Wrench, anyone who calls himself a professional mechanic shouldn't even consider it.

What? You guy never use a metric crescent wrench on your furr-ein cars and motorbikes?
Geeshh...

Had a co-worker that once worked for Diamond Tool & Horseshoe and if you called one of her wrenches a crescent wrench you were in trouble. Her's were "Diamond adjustable wrenches".
I know that adjustable wrenches are known for rounding the heads down, but at times they do come in handy.
Won a few bets by showing a Toho Koki 300mm adjustable wrench too.
I carried a 4" Diamond adjustable on my keeper for my work keys for many years. There was also a Gerber tool on the belt and a 4" pipe wrench in the back pocket.
Could do lots of stuff without heading back to the shop.
