    The more expensive torque sticks state for use with air and electric wrenches

    The local tyre place found, very quickly, that using these to tighten the nuts from the start, can over rev the gun and cause the torque stick to shatter when it comes to a hard stop. They used a normal extension to nip up the nut, swap to the torque stick and do the final torque.

    Can someone educate me on what the Torque Stick does??? Is this instead of using a Torque Wrench? are they Trustworthy?

    Basically they act like torsion suspension. They take time to twist and spring back with each hammering they receive from the rattle gun. This reduces the peak torque the gun produces.

    Seeing a mechanic just zipping up a wheel nut grates on me.

    I was taught to do the lug nuts up to just a few threads before they are tight. Wiggle the wheel while finger tightening the nuts to make sure they are seated before the final torque. Then take the vehicle for a short drive and re-torque the nuts.

    I also re-torque the nuts after someone else has replaced the wheels.

    Yes me too. Rattling up to torque kills me. I hand torque ans have never lost a wheel or had a wheel nut lossen

    I have a couple projects underway, here are a couple of additions to the shed once the postie brings them.



    650mm wide ans 120 degrees. Most others seemed to limit to 90 degrees which was not enough. Bonus it was about 40% off.

    Next



    300mm long guillotine. Cant wait.
