Venhill has introduced a professional grade Fractional Torque Spanner Set to its extensive range of workshop tools.

Whether restoring or maintaining a classic bike, using a torque wrench helps owners to ensure that the machine’s fasteners are tightened to the correct specifications, which is particularly useful on older bikes, where there is a danger of bolts sheering if over-tightened.

Versatile 'crow-foot' spanner attachments fit into hard to reach places that conventional sockets can't manage and the torque spanners come in sizes 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16" , 1/2", 9/16", 5/8" and 3/4". Operators can select a torque set range from 5-25 Nm (3.69-18.44 ft-lb).

To use, just slot in the required size spanner, set the torque using the markers on the handle, lock-off and it’s ready to tighten. A 1/4" square ratchet adapter, for use with sockets, is also included.

The VT86 Fractional Torque Spanner set costs £92.25 (including VAT), comes fully calibrated and in its own protective case.
