1/4 to 1/2 Adapter

Post by Beav »

Hi guys,

I was bought a torque wrench as a present but it's for 1/4 sockets. The sockets I have all seem to be mainly 1/2 inch.

I know you can get adapters for 1/2 wrenches to use 1/4 sockets (going down a size) but I need to go up from a 1/4 wrench to 1/2 sockets. Seems a shame to buy a whole new socket set for 1/4 when I have a lot for 1/2.

Anyone know where/if I can get one?

Thanks,
Beav

Does your torque wrench go up high enough to torque up anything you'd use 1/2" drive sockets on?

M8 bolt (13mm soccket) will likely be ll the torque wrench is up to.

Deffinately can get adaptors, from virtually anywhere.... even Amaz....or eb....

It will be used mainly for bicycle stuff. I have allen key adapters which fit the 1/2 socket. Smaller stuff i'm sorted as the 5mm etc allen key sockets fit the 1/4 inch :)
