Sometimes you find useful stuff in the strangest places.
Take torque screwdrivers, for instance. There are many connections we make where a torque is specified, and some folks are rumored to actually use torque measuring (or limiting) tools to make sure they apply just the right amount of torque.
One of the main barriers is the price of such tools; prices seem to start somewhere around $200.
Along comes www.midwayusa.com
. Catering to the gun owning community, they are offering the "Fat Wrench," a torque measuring screwdriver at a very reasonable price.http://www.midwayusa.com/mediasvr.dll/image?saleitemid=718023
I cannot personally speak for the utility of this product ... but I find it promising.
