Steelman Torque Stick 80 ft-lb $9.70 + Free in store pickup

Grainger.com [grainger.com] has the blue 80 ft-lb Steelman Torque Stick (50091A) for $9.70 with free in store pickup. The picture at Grainger is wrong, I ordered this online and picked up in store and verified it is the correct item.

This is $20 at Amazon and has never been under $18 there.

Great deal if you just want the 80 ft-lb!

Note this can only be used with an impact wrench or driver. This relies on the impact movement to set your bolt to the correct torque.

In store pickup for free.

Your title confused me, I'm used to these being called 'torque sticks'

If you need other ones, Harbor Freight has a 10 piece for $56, even cheaper if you wait for those 20-25% coupons.

So these work similar to a torque wrench, but can be used with an impact? Seems like a sweet idea if you do a ton of torquing to a specific ft/lb.

Yes, that is how they work. My understanding is these are used for speed, and sometimes followed up with a standard torque wrench.

For me this was a cheap way to get the torque I needed for one project without the expense of a torque wrench.

FYI, the $12 harbor freight 1/2" drive torque wrench is all an average person will ever need. Garagejournal did a test a while back and found the accuracy somewhere around 4%

HF gets a bad wrap a lot of the time, but I've actually had really good luck with their $10 torque wrenches. I wouldn't trust them if they'd been sitting for a long time under tension, but when I had my (9ish month old) wrench calibrated it was bang on.

I rebuilt a lot of my Jeep with it and so far I've noticed no ill effects.

Also ^^ this guy gets it.

Just making sure there wasn't a switcharoo.. but does anyone else see the "blue" as "purple-on-the-verge-of-pink"?

Yes, the picture on the site is wrong. The manufacturer model number listed (50091A) is correct and you will get the blue tool not the purple-pink one.

Torque sticks are bad. Get a hf torque wrench if you're strapped for cash
