Need a Tool/Socket

Figured I would ask here to see if there was anywhere local because most places only have up to 1"

I need a Crowfoot open end 1 1/4" socket

That way I can use a torque wrench with it.

Thanks!

I'm sure Resurrection can make you one.

And if you need it chrome plated, CP can charge you $800 to have the piece plated, lol!

Did the Sears told store finally fail you?

That's not true, but I have no desire to argue that point.

A squared + B squared = C squared

at some point in time (and I'll have to look in my tool box), and I do not remember what it was for, I had a special crows foot that was made with the 1/2" drive directly over the crows foot, with like a 6" extension between them.

I'm thinking it was for head bolts on a datsun,

Yea barrel nuts, I am building up my armory tool box.

the window is between 35-80 ft lbs and the offset is thankfully predictable since its consistent.

So just out of curiosity if I put an extension, or a 1/2 to 3/8 converter on a torque wrench, that will offset the torque value?

well, I agree, math is math, but with A much shorter than B, C will be very close to B

SnapOn probably makes one but I bet it's at least $50. I can check with my SnapOn guy if you want. He parks his truck behind the shop so I see him every day.

btw, just placed order to armalite, she had to check some of the parts to see if they were still in stock, sounded busy over there.

no, concentric changes don't effect torque

torque does change when you add an extention. The longer the extension, the more it will twist.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Eric Ended up following this lead and they had a set that we snagged from amazon to save a few bucks.

that makes sense to me because the change is with respect to the lever but a reducing adapter or extension shouldn't change torque, right?

It does simply due to slop. It might only be a percentage, but anything added to the measuring device has some effect on the measurement.

On the AR rails, since they have a wide range of lock down, it's not going to be a big deal, even if it were 5% off.

Exactly what I was going to post. And once you figure out the difference, just remember it as a percentage and write a note in the box to remind you later - makes for faster calculations.

It's not rocket surgery.
