Makeshift Wrench

The next time you need a wrench in a hurry and you don't have one handy, try this: screw two nuts-flat sides together-onto a good sized bolt. Space the nuts apart so that the head of the one you want to remove fits snugly between the "jaws" of your makeshift arrangement. The device can then be used just like an adjustable wrench.

I don't understand about the wrench part. More history on this.
