    Torque wrench calibration

    I have an opportunity to purchase a torque wrench calibration system. How many would be interested in having their wrench calibration checked?

    I would not be licensed to legally certify the torque, but I am always wondering if my wrenches are correct. I usually send them back to Snap-on, but its expensive, and takes a few weeks. The calibration charge would be approx $35.00 [email protected]

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Calibration.

    I don't have the technology to adjust them, but I might try it with my own tools first.. The most important part is to determine if its accurate, or worth returning to the Mfg for repair.

    Thanks,
    Randy

    I definitely would Randy, I have one I know is off. Simple test was comparing it to another wrench at the same setting and it kept turning the fastener. Count me in for three. One is in inch lbs 1/4" drive, would the equipment handle this?

    Calibration

    Yes,
    It would handle this.. I havent purchased the equipment yet, as its fairly expensive and I am gauging interest.. Remember, I cannot recalibrate, but I will be able to tell you what yours reads..
    Thanks,
    Randy

    Randy, I have to look into what it takes to adjust these. I used to work in a metrology lab and calibrate tools, mostly mics, calipers, indicators, scales, etc. but we did do Torque wrenches. I will ask one of my contacts through work about this.

    Thanks,
