Torque wrenches are used whenever you need to apply a specific torque to a fastener. With the development of componentry technology, the manufacturers lay specific details about the maintenance of various components of a machine. This involves the instructions on how much torque should be applied to tighten each bolt or a fastener. Consequently, torque wrenches have become an important aspect of every mechanic's tool kit.
