    I saw an illuminated torque wrench today.

    Usually workers build bridges over traffic at night. So having a light to show the bolt (that was shadowed by the wrench when wearing a headlamp) is a great idea.

    You guys would probably hate the tint. lol.
    Yup, all 22 blumens of it.

    I know Snap-on has installed a tiny work light on the heads of their larger torque wrenches for years -- Working in the Ship yards during 70's I remember it being an incan bulb, probably a CW LED variant today. We used a monster size torque wrench with 6ft extension bar for torqueing flange bolts on ships drive shafts (called screws) I don't miss those days!!

    That's the sorta tools the bridge guys are using.

    Picture a 6'4" man with a wrench so big it looks like he is carrying a baseball bat over his shoulder... massive amounts of tension between flanges being held together by those bolts.

    Pix from the screen of my work P&S.

    Here's a fellow calibrating one.
    Basically he pulls on it until the dial reads a specific number. Then once that number is set the wrench has a feature that activates a red light to indicate the bolt is proper tight. When it's being pulled on enough to reach a certain "tightness" or tension the red light blinks.
    The inspector is behind the worker verifying the wrench was set correctly.


    The worker used the flashlight feature in this shadow.
    The inspector verifies the red light blinked.

    The workers are union. The guy calibrating the wrench is the helper. He is not allowed to 'tighten bolts', only calibrate wrenches in this operation.
    The guy tugging on the wrench until the red light blinks is paid about twice per hour what the helper makes. All he does is tug on the wrench. The helper pulls the wrench from it's case, sets it up, hands it to the tug dude who later gives it back to the helper who puts it away. Tugger dude has half the experience of the helper and is a lot younger but...
    Tug dude's uncle works for the union, helper guy... well he is just another worker. Fair? Unfair? Don't matter to me.

    What does matter to me?

    Thanks for sharing photos.. I handled same size torque wrenches - The ship yards Tool Crib sent them out for calibration monthly. The only pre inspection was to confirm a current dated paper tag on tool head accuracy was within tolerances
    Torqueing nuts on ships drive shafts varied from 4 to 8" hex depending on type of vessel. Smallest were on Tugs, largest aircraft carriers. Emormous, even after working there 15yrs i was in awe everytime boarded one. Three football fields in length, was never allowed on flight deck but peeked out once before getting yelled at..
    Inspections to carriers engines cyl walls involved a marine machinist (Teamsters) standing on top of pistons. With cyl heads off of course, an engineer would "bump" over the engine, sending the machinist down the bore holding a USN Fulton 2D cell incan.. There was drop lighting, large watt protective coated incan bulbs. I can remember my maiden voyage made me pucker pretty tight!
    ** Sorry no photos!!

    Good story. Made me lol.

    Thanks for sharing. Was the Fulton a right angle type or straight type?
    I found some straight type USN from WW2 issue leftovers. Thin wall metal tube and a convex lens for super floody map reading. I was told they were for use by the guy who said "now now now" when on a bombing run.

    The Fulton was yard issue tool box lights. Straight body, plastic with USN printed on side. We had both styles, the angle heads were better for hanging off end ring. They were built pretty tough. I'd see guys night fishing off the piers using Fultons
    My father was WWII B-24 bomadier.. Back then most flashlights were metal (spun) tubes made with detail and style!

    Very nice lights magellan.

    That Brass Knurly seems unusually large ... compared to the Mac EDC for example.

    Thank you, the z2 pic on the cream guarding is up on the 21m level, on top of a 40t silo. Lower pics are in the exhauster room(used for transporting tea around )

    It is bigger than I was thinking when I first bought it, and feels quite substantial in your hand, like holding a roll of quarters. It’s bigger than the other knurlies.

    Does it still take an 18350, or does it need a larger battery size?

    Yes, although the Keeppower and Orbtronics don’t fit.

    Never point a flashlight at anything you don't intend to illuminate! Never buy a flashlight you have to make payments on.

    Very cool my fixer

    I am contemplating having an incand week for work. Probably a surefire one, kind of a “how it would have been 20yrs ago” type thing.

    We are spoiled today, years ago we did not have any where near then choices today . But we still got the work done(and maybe some pics CG, although no digital easiness of mobiles then).

    He may have to give his boss one of his lights to help his case!
