    Whoa torque wrenches are HUGE

    I had no idea the Park Tool torque wrenches I ordered from Performance would be so massive! Any advice on how I should store these delicate yet monstrously large tools?

    I store mine in cutouts in the padding liner i installed in the drawers of my tool boxes. I wipe most of them down with a light oil before they go back for the night.

    1) they aren't delicate.

    2) if you had bought a torque wrench at sears instead you could have saved some money and gotten a beautifully crafted, injection molded, plastic blister pack to store it in.

    The sears beam style torque wrench is so "delicate" that you bend the beam to recenter it to 0. I don't imagine the Park beam wrenches are much different.

    I'm thinking I'll do the same. As for the other comments, they're sure delicate compared to most other tools I have.

    Can't seem to find the allen adapters for the torque wrenches. Any idea where to look?

    McMaster-Carr or any good (real) hardware store
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    Looked at the McMaster website. Can't seem to find it among the millions of stuff they have. Are those the ones on page 2644?
