Cassette Lockring Torque

So I have this little tool:

http://www.parktool.com/products/det...t=4&item=FR-5G

I have a 0-600 in lb 3/8 in torque wrench and would like to start making sure it's torqued correctly. What kind of adapter/socket do I need to go from the 3/8 in torque wrench to the FR-5G? Do they even make one? Before I've been using a chain whip and the SR-1 (http://www.parktool.com/products/det...at=4&item=SR-1).

The Park FR-5 has a 1" hex so you will need either a 3/8" square drive 1" socket or a 1/2" square drive 1" socket plus a 3/8" female to 1/2" male adapter to use your torque wrench.

BikeToolsEtc. has many adapters and sockets available - for pretty cheap - to fit a torque-wrench.

I suggest that, if you haven't already, you add this site to your Favorites list.
