When I was a young man I was taught that every action has a reaction.  
If I use an electric drill to bore a hole -  and the drill bit becomes 
'stuck' the electric drill tries to twist my arm.   If I use an 'air 
powered' mechanics' gun I am able to undo ever the tightest nuts/bolts

Actually, Span-On is a brand of tool. Located on the WWW here:

These are quite popular on the various racing circuits in the US.

in the search box on snap-on's website.

Thanks for the question googel-ga!
