Torque Control

Longevity is key (even if that includes a stint in the garage)

When you work for a company it is natural that you are enthusiastic about them and their products. That’s how I feel about Norbar they have a fantastic range of tools and equipment. But it is more than that, my father is a retired mechanical engineer.

Some 35 years ago I needed a torque wrench for my personal usage mainly, if not exclusively, for use on the various cars I worked on. He told me to buy a Norbar which I did, as a good son should always listen to his dad. The Slimline 2 (SL2) gave me twenty-five years of trouble-free service although it has laid unused in my garage for around 10 years, always ready for action just not needed. That’s more a reflection on modern cars than my abilities.

I recently brought the SL2 into Norbar as part of a presentation to a customer. I had it checked in the calibration lab and they found it to be still within tolerance. If that’s not something to be passionate about then what is?

  2. Torque extension for setting correct values
  3. Torque tension to identify precise levels of torque to be applied for individual applications.
