    Torque screwdriver for small parts, check it out!

    I've noticed that almost every part I look at on my bike, it has a specific torque to tighten it down to. I bought this torque screwdriver for firearm use, mounting scopes, rings and bases and what not, just figured I'd post a link if anyone is interested in getting one. Its way easier than trying to use a torque wrench on small torx heads lol.

    I don't know what that company's email is, but you need to find it and ask them to make a bicycle version. It'd be really nice to have a portable torque wrench to add to my carry along tools.

    I mean one that does 0-20 newton meters.

    Torque screwdrivers aren't anything new, there's lots of models out there of varying ranges. 20 newton meters might be a bit high to apply with a screwdriver though?

    Yes, torque screwdrivers have been around for a while. I think everyone should do themselves a favor and buy a Wiha torque driver. Yes, they are expensive and it hurts to spend that kind of money, but if accuracy in these low torque ranges is important, a quality tool is probably appropriate.
    I bought one of these several years ago and have never regretted it: Torque Control Screwdrives in Newton Meters - Adjustable From Wiha
