DEFLECTING BEAM TORQUE WRENCHES
These world renowned top-of-the-range Dual-Signal Torque wrenches employ the principle of applying torque to a deflecting beam rather than a coil spring. This helps prolong wrench life, with a greater safety margin on maximum loading throughout the angle of each wrench.
The operator can see and hear when a Dual-Signal Torque Wrench reaches the selected torque. When working in a noisy situation, the signal can be seen; alternatively, if the operator cannot see the signal, he can hear it. In addition, the operator can usually feel when the signal mechanism releases.
The scale graduations are widely spaced and allow the operator to accurately pre-select the torque required.
MICROMETER and SCREEN MICROMETER TORQUE WRENCHES
Micrometer torque wrenches are some of the most commonly used and most versatile torque wrenches. The torque setting is easily adjusted by twisting the handle until the desired torque setting is reached. Rotating the handle clockwise tightens a spring inside, and when applying torque to a nut or bolt, the tool clicks when the correct torque has been reached.
Screen torque wrenches are very easy to set, with a convex screen magnifying the scale reading and displaying only one value at a time, eliminating torque setting errors. When the setting has been achieved, it is locked in place so that accidental changes to the setting are impossible. Once the desired torque has been reached, the wrench will automatically reset itself, ready for further use.
DIAL TYPE TORQUE WRENCHES
Dial type torque wrenches are considered to be one of the most accurate types of torque wrench, as the final reading is not easily affected by the hand-hold position. Due to their extremely accurate design they are suitable for use in the Automotive, Military/Defence, Industrial and Aircraft industries.
With a large easy-to-read dial, they are equally accurate in both left and right hand directions. Fitted with a follower needle to record highest reading, they are easy to operate, and accurate to +/-3% in both directions.
INTERCHANGEABLE HEAD TORQUE WRENCHES
There is now a range of Interchangeable Head Micrometer and Screen Micrometer torque wrenches. These wrenches allow the convenience to choose between a large selection of open end, ring and ratchet heads.
They feature right & left hand operation, metric scale with metric/imperial conversion printed on the body of the wrench, a convex screen to magnify the scale, and a positive setting lock.

DIGITAL TORQUE WRENCHES
Digital torque & angle wrenches have a simple to use digital readout that displays torque values in any of four torque units: ft.lbs., in.lbs., Nm, kg.cm, plus an angled value read out.
Simply set the desired torque value and apply force until the green LED screen illuminates. Suitable for light industrial, automotive, motorcycle, marine craft and aircraft applications.
WHEEL TORQUE EQUIPMENT
This 5-piece preset wheel nut torque wrench set is designed for the motor vehicle industry.
WB Tools also offers a range of wheel torque socket bars, extension bars and thin wall deep impact sockets designed to allow easy access to wheel fasteners, including fitted stud holes and deep recessed lugs, in order to tighten wheel nuts to required specifications. The wrenches, sockets and bars are colour-coded for easy identification.
