Norbar Torque Tools Inc. has introduced TruTorque, a new model of wrenches with an improved mechanism that uses the latest materials and engineering techniques. The coarse scale on the handle and a micrometer for fine setting allow for easy adjustment, according to the company.

The five TruTorque models range from 15-221 feet-pounds of torque. All sizes offer bi-directional torque control, essential for left-hand threads and for controlling maximum breakaway torque. Ratchets are reversible for ease of positioning and have a narrow engagement angle for tight spaces. Accuracy is to +/– 3% of reading, which exceeds international standards. Each wrench is supplied with a traceable calibration certificate. A lock is incorporated to prevent accidental adjustment of the set torque.
