Helped a friend who is 82 clean up around his shed and found these (pictures) he said gee, so that is where they got lost them a few odd years ago
He said that they were his fathers and must be at least 100 years old
Cleaned them and gave them back
Oh was he surprised I thought he was going to cry

He popped up again under yet another name on Smokstak and pretending that he was going to buy some crappy engines not running for big money and wanted some ideas about what they are worth.

Sounds like you got "PUTT PUTT" inside your phone.

Go to your settings and switch off predictive text and your worries will be no longer. Sometimes speel check can do some funny things too.

What was this spanner used for?
Why? look at the size of the head to the slot for nut/bolt

Many years ago my Dad had a foot operated 3' gilloutine and the spanners that came with it looked very similar in design to those ones but these were  large sizes around 7/8"W so big enough.
