It would be very useful if you could include the price in the title.

I just need an 80 ft.-lbs. stick for my lug nuts. Anyone only need the bigger sizes, I'd be happy to split a set.

Located in central east Toronto.

Torque sticks only work good for air tools, you wouldn't want to use a Torque stick with an electric impact gun.

Yeah heard about this
Something to do with the electric impacts not giving out the same torque specs with lower charged batteries.

With that being said, I would always recommend using a Torque wrench after the sticks anyways as they are more of a guideline and not really made for accuracy

Bought these a few years back and only used it once.

Since you should finish with a torque wrench anyways, it's not saving any time vs using an impact on lowest setting then finishing with torque wrench.

My lowest setting on my impact tightens around to 60ish ft-lbs then I finish with torque wrench.

Wouldn't that be true of air guns if a homegamer was using a small compressor that was on the lower end of the psi or gpm spec for the gun?

l

probably the same idea. To be fair, I would only recommend these if you were a professional Tire changer banging on tires every hour with the gun on the highest setting and need a guideline as to not overtight.

Otherwise... Use a low setting and Torque wrench

OP, I upvoted because of your signature! Plus I had no idea such a thing as torque sticks existed. I was hoping for something like this,

Yup, same idea. If you use a small compressor that doesn't output the right amount of SCFM your tools will be operating super weirdly especially when it comes down to getting the accurate torque with these sticks.

My Milwaukee torch wrench can put out 500 ftlbs of torque on a battery.... Battery technology has come a long way and the power the battery is doesn't effect the performance of the tool anymore...

I use the princess auto brand torque sticks and checked the torque sticks many times with a DeWalt torque wrench. They do the job just ensure the torque stick stops spinning and you're good

Inaccurate, I have a M18 Milwaukee Fuel with the PrincessAuto torque sticks and I still trust my torque wrench far more.
