A man once showed me a trick he called “ walking the wrenches”


He took his box wrench set and hung the small ends just over the workbench
Then took 2 screwdrivers, one in each hand.


With the first, he stuck it through the first wrench and slung it in a circle so it spun around
With the second screwdriver, he scooped up the next wrench through it’s hole, but did not spin it.
He then timed the spinning wrench and slipped the 2nd screwdriver through its’ outer hole.
So it was like a hinge between the 2 wrenches
And let it go (handle at a slight upwards angle, not quite horizontal)
Let it spin around once, then caught the screwdriver at the same time he removed the 1st one.


With the 1st screwdriver, he scooped up the 3rd wrench and this continued, never did he have to
make another twirling motion to spin the wrenches, yet the last and largest wrench spun around having many times more energy than the tiny wrench he started with.


Said it was all about the timing, like juggling

Not timing like you are trying to count
But timing like an engine, coordination
