Just putting the feelers out to gauge interest for now. Last week i was helping my Dad clear out all his tools from his boat. I found a Britool torque multiplier in an old rusty Britool box. The actual tool itself looks to be in good condition, and from memory the torque ratio was 5.1. I have yet to try the tool, and need to take it into work to check it on our calibrated torque checking tool. I think it is 3/4" drive with a step down to 1/2" drive, but would need to double check this.

Would there be anyone out there interested in this, and does anyone have a guide price for it, providing it works ok once i check it?

Cheers

Richie

What Snoopy meant to say was the £10 region - will that include postage?

the kennedy is cheap compared to a britool one. just wondering if britool are made here or Taiwan, luckily my britool stuff is all 1970ís quality. Torque multipliers need the occasional check for calibration as it is easy to over tighten stuff. But for £10 I will offer to pay tracked
postage as well ;D

Work in foot lbs and all you need is a decent 3\4" drive torque wrench and a length of pipe. Plus a bit of maths even I could compute and have done   ;D ;D

Sadly something is literally only worth what someone is willing to pay... ;) ;) ;)
