Best Answer

In a second class lever the fulcrum and input effort are at opposite ends with the object load between.

Though with a wrench to fasten a nut/bolt you apply effort at one end and this turns the load , which to my understanding is the nut/bolt you're trying to fasten at the other end.
The fulcrum is the jaw used to grip the nut/bolt and turn over and the nut/bolt is the object load.
How is the load between?
