Tested the torque wrench. Definitely an issue with it. I'll ping Joey on the side and figure out what to do about a replacement.

The Techniks product link mentioned above is expired/dead.

I have standard torque wrenches and was hoping I could find some sort of 90 degree adapter so I don't have to buy a $358 straight-line torque wrench.

Would the following adapter work properly? I am assuming so but am concerned about whether or not I'd be getting the proper amount of torque transferred to the nut if I'm using this elbow??

a recessed square drive hole would need to be machined into the tool, to accommodate the square end of the torque wrench, similar to a crows foot. then the new arm length would need to be measured to calculate the factor (<1.0) to multiply times the torque wrench reading.

It is amazing how much torque 100# really is. I bought the Techniks torque wrench and adapter (cry once). Not having to change bits as often is just another benefit of the ATC. Oh, and the tool holder so you can finger tighten a collet with two hands instead of three.
