When selecting a torque wrench, determine what the average or most common torque setting will be when you use it. Then choose a torque wrench that will adequately cover your anticipated torque specifications by selecting one with an appropriate scale for your requirements.

These new torque wrenches from Laser Tools are all 1/2" drive and available in three scale ranges:

Part number 5622 (25—135 Nm, 18.5—100 lb-ft), 5623 (50—225 Nm, 40—166 lb-ft) and 5624 (70—330 Nm, 52—244 lb-ft).

The shaft of these professional quality torque wrenches is marked up in Newton metres (Nm), pound-foot (lb-ft), kilogram metre (kg-m) and pound/inch (lb-in) and each one comes with its own certificate of test and calibration. Can be used for both right-hand and left-hand threads.

Ideal for use in noisy environments as the progressive torque build-up to the selected setting is detected by three clear signals: sight, touch and sound, the audible click easily felt through the shaft.

Available now from £116.00 (+VAT) for 5622 but remember to check your local supplier for the best prices and special offers.
