@ Work: Field engineer survival 101 - Tip #2

Continuing on a series of Field engineer survival 101 tips...

This is a "Monkey" wrench, as they call it in Korea. Elsewhere, it goes by the name Crescent (USA) and adjustable (say... Malaysia). Use of the Monkey is not limited to tightening/loosening of bolts and nuts.

When necessary, use it appropriately, say to hold down your ramen cup cover, while it cooks.


Other items that may be piled on top to keep the heat in the cup include grinding wheels (as shown in the example above), fittings, pipes, flanges... etc.

By the way, that was my 4 a.m. pre-breakfast at work today. I'm back on early morning shifts for a few days doing alignment work.

Anonymous... Ha ha ha, I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out.

The noodle's correct romanisation of 라면 should be Ramyeon, but yeah... Thanks :)
