QUOTE (dangermouse @ 1 Dec 2011, 08:52) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Sorry Jacques

I was making a joke. I thought it was a bit funny that I needed another wrench to change the bit - as this is the only 1.27 wrench I have. Most of my cars have 0.9 grub screws but I needed the 1.27 wrench for my new NSR cars. I was planning on swapping the bits around between 1.27 and 0.9 as I thought the handles were inter changeable - I have read on your website now that there is a set handle for each size.

I am very happy with the wrench - it is very well made and the torque feature works really well.

Hi, I just stumbled across this thread, and saw the picture of the Slotting Plus Torque wrench and the spare/replacement tips and thought - I didn't realise you could buy one handle and just swap the tips, I'll get one of them, but as you have just found out - it appears you can't swap the tips for the different sizes, shame that.

Maybe each size tip has a different Torque setting, possibly - just a thought, so you need a different handle for each tip. Why else would they make you buy a separate handle for each tip?, other than to make more money.

Funny that you need another Allen key to change the tip, would be even funnier if it needed the same size that was on the tip to change it.

They look way nice though, can't beat having quality tools. I would buy them - no worries, if I didn't have a 1001 other things I want/need to buy!

Take an example : For 0,9 tip, the torque of the tool is limited in order to not damage by forcing too much when you loose screws ....
If the tip is different, the limit of the torque is different too !

So, it is not for gain money ! It is just three different tools with their change bits

Hi, we understand now, "each tool has a different Torque setting". So each tool has to have its own specific size tip to work properly.
