A Podger spanner, or Podger is a tool in the form of a short bar, usually tapered and often incorporating a wrench at one end.
Podgers are used for erecting scaffolding and steel scenery - The pointed end is used to align the bolt holes while the spanner end is used to tighten the nuts.
Some podgers are fitted with reversible ratchet sockets for tightening/loosening nuts.
