digital torque adaptor

Has anyone ever used one? Are they worth having? I like electronic toys not sure Ive ever seen one of these in action. It just snaps on to any ratchet ( with right adaptor) and use as a torque wrench. Hummm :shock:

I have one of each 3/8 and 1/2. They work, but you gotta put them on a Johnson bar, as mostly a ratchet doesn't give a person enough torque amplification, especially if you want to torque to 150 ft lbs. :lol: :lol:

yea they work but for sure don't need a torque wrench to operate but a strong arm , yes. I also have 2 , the one is more money than the other ,, the least expensive one works as well as the pricey one . if they are used everyday the more expensive one may be a little tougher but for 6 times a year the cheapy works just fine .. My beef with them is the same as the dial torque wrenches or the older needle and gauge ones you need to watch them because especially the cheaper ones dont have a signal or beep sound when they reach the torque you want ,,..
Give me a $40.00 click wrench any day nice steady pull,, click , it's good . better keep some batteries on hand because just when you need it the buggers are dead .. just more unnecessary technology in my opinion but each to his own . I also have a digital pressure gauge for adjusting the wastegate opening pressures on my drag bike ,, that is handy when dealing with low pressures from 6-20 lbs. ,, better than guessing on a needle gauge .. and yes the darn battery did go dead on the grass track one day when setting things . ;)

Well I dont need another BATTERY EATER. I have 2 of those. My old Sony Digital camera. And a nice flashlight that the batteries are between AA and C and hard to find. But it can eat them up. So this is where I TAP OUT. Thanks for my decision.
