Eastwood Electronic Torque Angle Adapter

    Eastwood Electronic Torque Angle Adapter

    Product Review (submitted on November 17, 2012):

    I bought this adapter mainly to check the accuracy of other wrenches, which it does well in peak mode. I use a cheap 1/2" female-to-3/4" male enlarger to clamp it indirectly in a vise. I don't think that this adapter would serve very practically for routine torquing. I like it so much, though, that I plan to also buy the wrenches of similar design. The LCD display could be improved a bit. Use the center button to finalize torque setting (the instructions omit that detail). The transition from torque to angle is much faster when the unit is held still.

    I want to comment on someone else's review of the similar 3/8" torque wrench, in which they harshly criticized the angle measuring feature. I think that the wrench probably operates the same as the adapter, and that the angle can be reset to zero at any time. So you can torque out the slop and then hit zero, no big deal to me.
