Default Update from June 2022

Thanks to Silverback, I upgraded the tool with a torque multiplier. It now is easily portable and puts down over 5000 ft/lbs of torque. You now can remove a badly stuck spinner with your baby toe.

Default Upgrade

I added another little upgrade. A Grade 8 clamping system that holds the torque multiplier steady as a rock (it had been torquing over a bit when you cranked the handle). The clamping system goes all the way through the three stacked 2 x 10's and the torque multiplier's arm pushes down while the clamp pulls up which results in no movement. Of course it disassembles quickly for easy transport. Mucho Coolo.

That big ass clamp is courtesy of Alabama Clamp Company in Mobile. They were a pleasure to deal with and didn't bat an eye when I told them what I wanted and that it had to be strong enough to hold down a freight train.
