White Oak inch/lb Torque Wrench Sale

White Oak Armament has their inch ounce scope installation tools on sale. Most damaged scopes that come into LGS were ruined during installation. Seems like very few people can twist up proper inch/pound or especially inch/ounce numbers with a standard driver and by feel. They have scope slipping so grab the wrench and twist up some more resulting in bent scope tube overtorquing their screws, often in misaligned rings. A scope lapping kit and inch/pound wrench almost guarantees a good job even using discount chinese scope rings off fleabay.

I found most DIY'ers don't know the difference between inch-pounds and foot-pounds. So when the manual says torque to 20 to 30 inch-pounds they go to 20-30 foot pounds. I have removed may scope base screws from receivers after they were wrung off from over torque.

I learned a hard lesson in torque a number of years ago ....

thought I could not damage a 12mm x 1.0 shaft bolt w/ a tiny little 3" long snap-on 3/8" drive stubby ratchet ..... damn, was I ever wrong !

Murphy kicked my ass across 2 counties and in circles for a week all while screwing my ass w/ a un-greased splintered broomstick

there is a damn good reason for the right torque wrench and that chart of recommended max torque values for a given size & grade bolt in a given material

yes, it cost me thousands of dollars and many hours of my time
