    The wrench that they use on the propeller of a T-56 (C-130, P-3, E-2) is a huge box end (10 in?) only 3-4 feet long.. but comes with a sledgehammer to bang on it.. fierce amounts of torque..

    When tanking in the Army, there were these huge wrenches that took two men to pick up. We regularly practiced fixing a thrown tread. But, the Army did not provide us with that tool in a battle situation - cause if you threw a tread in battle, you would die while trying to fix it. So, as soldiers, we would say to each other, "Why are they teaching us to do something we can't do?"
