Robust, accurate new torque wrench raises the standard

Robust, accurate new torque wrench raises the standard
Norbar Torque Tools has introduced what it describes as one of the most significant new designs in its history, the new TruTorque. The aim of the design team was to produce the best possible tool using the latest materials and engineering techniques for UK and World markets and at a competitive price. The result is an outstanding range of products.

Key objectives were to produce a wrench that is durable and will stay in calibration for as long as possible, even when used regularly in tough workshop conditions. The new wrench uses an improved mechanism that still retains some of the elements from the original tried and tested design. Adjustment is simplicity itself, with the coarse scale on the handle and a micrometer for fine setting. Whereas some well known wrenches need an arm wrestler to adjust them, the new Norbar wrench moves with fingertip control over the whole length of the scale. And the totally new grip design is extremely comfortable with excellent slip resistance in all conditions.

The TruTorque models cover a total torque range from 20 to 300Nm in five models. All sizes offer bi-directional torque control, essential for left hand threads and for controlling the maximum torque when undoing bolts. Ratchets are reversible for ease of positioning and have a narrow engagement angle so they can be used in tight spaces.
