I think so... Is there a 'corded screwdriver?'

How about a 'dead man's switch?'

Here' another. It's not really a dumb name but it could have another meaning....ridge reamer! Could be used in conjunction with some of above listings for a scintilating "Tim'"experience! Time for bed!

I had a guy at AutoZone call a hub puller a "crow's foot" When I asked for the hub puller he brought out the tool used for pressing in a bearing race. Would that be considered a "race hammer"??

Come on guys where are the rest of those tools that we use, but not for the way they are named. Has anyone ever used a jack stand on a jack? Has any one ever tapped a tap? Wouldn't you just die for a die Who came up with the name carburetor Carbonater would be more descriptive.

Monkey Wrench. Yesterday, watching a tool show on cable. In England, a guy worked in some shop and fashioned a wrench to do work. He was kind of Monkey Looking so they called him Monkey!! Nice endearing name!!! Guys started using Monkey's wrench. He should have told them to tighten their nuts with it!!LOL! Hence the name Monkey Wrench.
