And todays bargain is.....

Been to Merry Hill and picked up this little beauty. Torque wrench, 2-24nm on a 1/4" drive. £19.99 from Clas Ohlson down by Asda. They had a 1/2" drive one too, 40-200nm (I think) £29.99...... But I've already got one of them..
Bargain :0)

small point;

If it does not break, decrease the setting until it does.

Good home method though.

Where do you get your spring balance calibrated?:smile

How often is the .............

Calibration device, calibrated?:wink:

I have a Norbar torque wrench that has been handed down 3 generations, must be 30 - 40 years old maybe older.

When I got it, I had it tested, it was found to be well within tolerance.

Have you got no chums in Electrical or Mechanical Engineering? Any decent workshop should have a calibrator.

I would love a Norbar but it'll have to wait until funds allow.

And yeah, I work for an Aerospace company so I'll ask around on Tuesday, maybe they have summat or next time someone comes in to do theirs they might do mine too.. Cheers...

How much does a 1 kg bag of sugar weigh? Can be cross checked with the kitchen scales and as I said the method is good enough for the home mechanic.

As for the break point thanks for the correction.
