Default Torque Multiplying Wrench

Where can I find one of these. I think it was an X-12? Searched the forums and came up with zip. Thanks!

For that kind of money I'd invest in a 1" Torque driver and run it off the Air Brake tanks in the field and from my compressor when home. I've used a 6:1 torque converter before but don't remember it taking off the stud? Anyway, Just another opinion.

The thing about the X-12 is you can torque your lug nuts using a standard torque wrench. But for a quick road fix, I would prefer a 1" impact gun. The higher priced X-12 has a lockup option so you can spin the nuts on and off, and then tighten the last few turns with the torque multiplication. Otherwise you are working at 12 to one all the way, and that is very tedious.

The nice thing about it, is it comes in a small (~12"x8"x4") box that stores great. The problem with a 1" gun is the air volume required for a decent gun is substantial. Our birds aren't set up to deliver that much air, so you may find yourself waiting for the air to build back up to run the gun. Time may end up being the same for both.

I use a 475lb-ft torque stick. Costs about $90. It acts as an extension for a standard 1" drive. Any truck tire shop can set the lug nut torque on all wheels in just a few minutes.

I have used the X12 and its a nice unit but a bit pricey.

Northern Tool has a multiplier for a lot less money. I wonder if it is good enough for the occasional use it would get?

What do you all think about this?

See the first Customer Review...need Torque Wrench to make the tool accurate. Looks like it is lighter and perhaps more user friendly than the X-12. I've used my X-12 a few times, it's heavy and bulky for one person, but it does the job. Two people working the X-12 is better. One to hold the X-12 in place and the other to turn the Torque Wrench. Don't drop the X-12 on your finger...OUCH.
