How Do Torque Wrenches Work?

Torque wrenches are a tool used to measure and set the correct amount of "tightness" or torque on a bolt, nut or similar piece of work. Torque Wrenches look and operate a bit like a ratchet, they normally have a square drive to mount a socket on. You set your torque wrench to the desired measurement of torque (usually in nm or lb/ft) then, when you use the wrench to tighten or "torque up" the bolt, when it hits the set value, it will click or slip, so you cannot tighten any more and you know to stop. Some large models also break in the middle and digital torque wrenches may beep or flash, digital torque wrenches will usually give a readout also.

So, choosing a torque wrench is easy. Just pick one that has the correct drive for the tool or socket you want to fit and covers the torque range you need to measure for your application.
