    Nuts and bolts

    This maybe a silly question but having acquired an impact wrench I wondered if there is a right and a wrong way to undo and do up nuts and bolts. For example should you have a ring spanner and impact wrench do you hold the nut and undo the bolt or the other way around. I appreciate there will...
