Looks like a monster 3/4" drive torque wrench
- Actually maybe a 1/2" looks like the 3/4" side would be for attqaching the hanle to, and the spinner and sockets look to be 1/2".

Where'd it come from? Looks expensive.

That is the Militaries famous Kenuzit Valve remover.

The Kenuzit Valve is used primarily for rotating the summer and winter air in and out of tires. But at times it is used to remove and change out muffler bearings. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">

Yes. And it also comes in handy when you wanna adjust your piston-return springs. <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">

Torque multiplier, with built in torque meter? That looks to be a crank at the bottom of the case...

I think it is a large torque wrench too. I for one would be proud to have a tool that looks like that in my collection. Even if I never used it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Just like a newbie, ask a serious question get a useless, BUT FUNNY answer.

Sure looks like some type of torque deflection or twist guage to measure how much a shaft twists under a load. Looks like it has a magnetic base for a mirror so you can view the dial if it is in an awkward posistion.

It's a 600 lb 3/4" drive torque wrench, with a yoke tool for crushing those pesky crush sleeves.


A friend bought it at a DPMS sale for $35, it had just been recalibrated, then the military came out w/ a digital model, all these are now obsolete!

That thing looks a whole lot more expensive than a mere $35. Damnit, why can't I find cheap tools that look like they can from a NASA research lab!?

Damn, I just use two "calibrated" pipes.

For $35, I wouldn't mind a "nuke in a briefcase" crush sleeve tool also though.
