If any good comes out of this I went and looked at what I have and my 3/8""X 1/2" special low profile adapter I have been missing for awhile was on my 0 to 100 in. lb torque wrench :D
0 to 100" lb beam style Matco

0 to 100 ft. lb beam style Blackhawk

my 3/8" and 1/2" clickers are SK never a problem with them.

I Have 2 KD's that came apart on me :cry:
I was taught ( on old stuff pre 70's) not to use a torque wrench and it has served me well,,, I have no problem tightening fasteners with out one... I bet most here that are experienced and pay attention to what they are doing can do the same...
I started in a shop full of old timers that made their living on production... I brought the first torque wrench that was used in that shop around 1972... I also brought the first 3/8" air ratchet used in that shop,,, I also brought the first 3/8" butterfly air wrench that was used in that shop,,, I also was the first to own my own 1/2" air wrench... Till then their was one 1/2" air wrench and it was passed around :shock:
I am not telling you to go with out a torque wrench but to learn to feel different ranges so if it comes down to not having one you have the feel for it with standard hand tools...I do use them more than ever now on this plastic aluminum chit I have to work on now... Times have changed...

Standard ratchets torque values in the good old days...

1/4" 18 ft lbs

3/8" 35 ft lbs

1/2" 70 ft lbs

1/2 long pull bar 120 ft lbs.

After I submitted I remembered that was in the day when they had only one in-ground lift cars were lifted with screw type bumper jacks back then only new car dealers has lifts and a service station my have one in-ground lift... When they brought air lift bumper jacks i thought it could not get any better...
