Interested in the torque wrench; reviews all speak positively of it. The one complaint I see is that all settings are lost after each powerdown and it auto powers down after 2 minutes. Are these issues addressed or are you planning to 'fix' these down the line? Or is it by design?

That is correct. The wrench turns off after two minutes of not being used, and the "Target Torque" is not saved. However, it only takes about 10 seconds to set the torque, so it is a minor inconvenience. It is something that we are planning on changing down the line, but have no definitive date.

I like that little attachment... any plans to incorporate degrees measurement into the torque wrench? or is that something you already have? I have yet to check.

I am in the market for a torque wrench... need to stop borrowing others' wrenches. lack of the degree measurement is a bit of a negative though.

We don't have the angle measurement built into the wrench. It is something we are considering, but came out with the Angle Gauge first because we felt that there were a lot of advantages to having it separate.

First, you are not limited by the range of the wrench (i.e. if it goes up to 100 ft.lbs, then your angular turn can't take you past this number). Unfortunately, you almost never know what the final torque spec will be after the turn - so it can be a problem if you exceed capacity mid-turn. With our unit, you can put it on any size drive, and any size handle.

It also saves you the wear on tear on your torque wrench, since you can use it on a ratchet or breaker bar instead. It also makes hitting the final torque numbers easier, since you can put it on a long-handle breaker bar/ratchet and thus get a lot more leverage into that final turn.
