Re: Torque wrench question

Someone had told me that if you use an extension on a torque wrench it would not be accurate. Longer the extension, the more it throws it off. Anyone?

Re: Torque wrench question

I have always been told the same thing, father was a mechanic for 15 years and that is what he taught me, if using an extension - crank up the torque a bit higher

Re: Torque wrench question

Exactaly, its loosing torque through the spring in the extention. The more the extention twists, the more energy taken away from bolt or nut.
