Using a “Crowfoot” socket with a torque wrench

Recommended Posts

Interesting .... I was wondering myself how much error I end up introducing using various extensions  .... on the other hand with a torque of say 225 lbs per inch ... will it make any practical difference if it is , say 230 or 220 ?

Depending on the extended length, it may result a sizable error, much more than you assert.

Quoted from the SCFLIER Forum, 23 minutes ago,  Mel said:

The required angle will depend on the length of the extension wrench.  To be perfectly accurate, measure the distance from the handle to the torque wrench point of rotation and make the distance from the handle to the adjusting bolt the same.  And like I said, his method will get you real close until your extension wrench gets longer.”
