what the heck - we even use that terminoligy here , +1 dairy farmer , i was taught that terminoligy for the various wrenches in my tool box by my grandfathers and my father , ill not speak for my son - he is near 30 now so he can speak for himself but i used it while raising him , 

lord knows what he got exposed to in school - im not a fan of our liberal education system , they tend to think only those uneducated use such implements - but i did tell him when he was young so hopefully he will remember it one day , a man that cant speak the language is uneducated  - one that cant use the tools is handicapped ,

Nice set of tools Dairy Farmer! And yes I agree totally with your description. 
But it's not just tools and clips that give us "Brit's" trouble with the American language; don't get me started on bit's of car's, it get's messy!!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

A spanner is of fixed sizes of either 2 sizes (flat or ring either side) or a flat/ring combination of one size.
A wrench is normally adjustable like a monkey (or pipe) wrench.

I guess its the same as calling a firearm a gun. It has become the norm. I typically refer to mine as firearms, rifles, shotguns, pistols and revolvers. But I still go to the gunsmith and gun shop. I don't take offence is someone uses the term gun as I know what they are talking about when taken in context. 
 
Quote Some handgun experts make a technical distinction that views pistols as a subset of handguns. Sometimes in usage, the term "pistol" refers to a handgun having one chamber integral with the barrel, making pistols distinct from the other main type of handgun, the revolver, which has a revolving cylinder containing multiple chambers. But UK/Commonwealth usage often does not make this distinction. For example, the official designation of the Webley Mk VI was "Pistol, Revolver, Webley No. 1 Mk VI", and the designation "Pistol No. 2 Mk I" was used to refer to both the Enfield Revolver and the later Browning Hi-Power semi-automatic.
 
I do agree about the term Charger or Charger Clip vs Stripper Clip. It is obviously more descriptive calling it a Charger Clip. For many years I was a forestry manager. When felling Eucalyptus we have a gang of women who strip the bark off freshly felled logs. They are called strippers as opposed to de-barkers, which refers to a mechanical device for removing bark from (mainly) pine logs.
 
In this PC world (or where politicians stamp their authority) things change. For example here in SA the government has this annoying habit of calling pupils (or students) learners and teachers are called educators.
 
So we do need to take somethings in context, but also educate (not teach) people on the correct terminology. We are all learners (not students) of life.

That's funny. With all the lecturing on correctness, I was thinking the same thing.

'Charger' is the correct official name, but one has to change the long standing bad habits of others in the gentlest way possible! One step at a time. Wink
