Torque...

All this talk of cheep and torque... two things that do not coexist.

If you are are concerned enough about your equipment to even think about torque setting you need to invest in an accurate torque measuring unit. If you cheap out you will pay the price in broken, gaulded and failed equipment. If you can't buy a decent certified and calibrated tool... pay somebody that has invested in the tool to do the work accurately.
If you need a good deal,let me know. I know a guy...

thats what your special "beer" opening tool in your tool puch is for. there is a special mathematical formula that will help you adjust your wrench to the proper torque using it as an extension. the torque wrench end should fit into the beer cap removing end, assuming you have a 1/2" drive. if not use an adapter like mine.




good luck,
