Over-torque a bolt and it'll fail; under-torque and it can loosen.
Pottstown, PA (PRWEB) October 02, 2014
The Eastwood Company has launched pro-quality Micrometer Torque Wrenches, at DIY prices, that offer accuracy equaling or exceeding that of many torque wrenches on the market. For those working on vehicles, proper torque settings are critical. The Eastwood torque wrenches measure in either ft/lb and in/lb, and are available in 3/8" and 1/2" sizes.
"Over-torque a bolt and it'll fail; under-torque and it can loosen. These new Eastwood torque wrenches have a signal function that prevents over torquing of fasteners, plus the locking mechanism assures settings stay set while in use," said Nick Capinski, Eastwood Content Manager.
Eastwood torque wrenches feature a low profile head design that allow these wrenches to get into tighter spots than other wrenches. They have a fine ratcheting action and are accurate to +/-3%, clockwise and counterclockwise. The patent-pending cam wheel design eliminates friction to improve accuracy, and the special link design reduces wear and tear, extending calibration life by 200% to 300%. The two point external calibration access promotes precision adjustment, and the low stress designs eliminate the need to adjust the wrench to its lowest setting after each use.
