Why you NEED to calibrate your torque tools
We only posted this infographic back in November, but it was an instant hit with many of our readers.
Maybe for the simplicity, maybe because people just like flowcharts, or maybe because it was actually useful.
Regardless of why, it’s worth revisiting.
Torque tools aren’t hammers, after all. There is a touch of muscle involved in using them, but there is a degree of precision in getting the right torque on the bolt.
That precision requires the tool to be calibrated and certified.
